New Delhi: CRPF Chief Dilip Trivedi on Sunday retired from service even as the government is yet to appoint a new Director General for the country's largest paramilitary force.

1978-batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IPS officer Trivedi, who flew down from Guwahati to the force headquarters here after attending the two-day DGPs and IGs conference, was seen off by senior officials of the force.

He headed the Central Reserve Police Force for close to 15-months.

Meanwhile, Special DG of the force RC Tayal has been named by the Home Ministry as the acting Chief till a successor to Trivedi is appointed.

CRPF, with over 3 lakh personnel in its ranks, is the mainstay for anti-Naxal operations in the country. It is also deployed extensively in its hinterlands for rendering various internal security tasks, including counter-insurgency and law and order duties.
