Tajender Singh Luthra, a 1990-batch Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre officer, took over as the new UT Inspector General of Police on Wednesday.

Before addressing a meeting with all police officers on the first day of his office at a multi-purpose hall in Sector 26, Luthra asked them to first come up with their problems. IGP Luthra also asked a senior officer to note down these problems so that these could be addressed within a few days.

A welcome parade was held for him at the Sector 26 police lines.

The cops, seeking anonymity, said the new IGP was the first one to urge the cops to come up with problems. He also assured to frame policies to provide opportunities so that every cop gets chance to work in all departments.

Highlighting his problem, sub-inspector Ashok Tulli said, “I sought posting in the vigilance department, but failed.”

IGP gave them reply by saying that all problems would be considered and would be dealt and if there was any need to change policy or to frame policy for welfare of cops, they would draft it. For sports activity, he asked to make a list of games along with sports persons so that it would be started.
