Rahul Rasgotra takes over as ITBP DG

IPS officer Rahul Rasgotra took charge as the new director general of the (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) ITBP, a paramilitary force tasked to guard the India-China Line of Actual Control.

Rasgotra, a 1989-batch police officer of the Manipur cadre, was handed over the customary baton by his predecessor Anish Dayal Singh.

Noteworthy, the new ITBP DG was given a guard of honour by a ceremonial unit of troops at the headquarters of the force at Lodhi Road before he took charge.

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) had issued orders for the appointment of Rasgotra as ITBP head on December 28.

Worth mentioning that the officer has spent nearly three decades in the Intelligence Bureau handling important desks and was serving as its special director.

He is slated to retire in September 2025.
