Bassi to take over as Delhi Police chief today
New Delhi: IPS officer Bhim Sain Bassi will take charge as the Delhi Police chief on Wednesday, replacing Neeraj Kumar.
A 1977 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre, Bassi, 57, was the front-runner for the post.
Bassi has been the Special Commissioner of Police (Administration) and previously headed the Delhi Traffic Police and was also Goa`s Director General of Police.
He has also been the Special Commissioner (Vigilance), Joint Commissioner (Southern range) and Additional Commissioner (Northern range).
Neeraj Kumar, a 1976 batch IPS officer, took charge of Delhi Police from BK Gupta on July 1 last year.
His biggest challenge followed the December 2012 gang rape of a young woman that unleashed unprecedented mass protests in the capital.
The woman later died in Singapore.
