After assuming charge as director general of police (DGP) of Punjab, Suresh Arora on Monday paid obeisance in the sanctum sanatorium of the Golden Temple here.

The 1982-batch IPS officer said that he was here to pay obeisance and to pray before the Almighty for the peace and tranquillity in Punjab.

Arora, who was serving as chief director of Vigilance Bureau, was appointed as the new DGP in place of Sumedh Singh Saini yesterday.

The change at the top level in police was made amidst intense attack by opposition on the SAD-BJP government over its handling of the situation that developed after incidents of sacrilege in various parts of the state, during which two persons were killed when police opened fire.
