Hyderabad: Ending a day-long suspense,
Andhra Padesh Government finally issued an order appointing
Indian Police Service Officer of the 1977 batch K Aravinda Rao
as the new Director General of State Police.

He takes the place of R R Girish Kumar who retired
today from service on attaining the age of superannuation.

Aravinda Rao is currently the Director General of
State, Anti-Corruption Bureau. He was the Additional Director
General of State Intelligence Department when Y S Rajasekhara
Reddy was Chief Minister and also held important posts like
the Additional Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad, Inspector
General of Police (Greyhounds) and IGP (Crime Investigation
Department).

There was an intense competition for the DGP`s post
as a few officers senior to Aravinda Rao and a couple of his
batch mates too were in the race.

Principal Secretary (Home) P Gautam Kumar, Director
General of Special Protection Force A Sivasanker, DG of
Vigilance and Enforcement Department and Additional Director
General of Police (Logistics) Umesh Kumar were short-listed
for the DGP`s post along with Aravinda Rao.

Though Chief Minister K Rosaiah was said to have cleared
Aravinda Rao`s name for the DGP`s post last evening, a formal
order was not issued keeping everyone guessing.
