Tajender Singh Luthra, inspector general of police, UT, has been promoted as the first director general of police, Chandigarh.

This is the first time that the city police force gets a DG as the department has always been led by an IG-rank officer, previously.

Punjab governor and UT administrator VP Singh Badnore along with adviser Parimal Rai decorated the officer with stars of a DGP on Monday. Luthra, a 1990 batch AGMUT cadre officer, was appointed the Chandigarh IGP in February 2016.
