Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Thursday held a high-level meeting here and reviewed the law and order situation in the state with senior police and other Government officials.

The meeting, attended by Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, Home Minister R R Patil, DGP Sanjeev Dayal, Additional Director General (Establishment) Javed Ahmed, among others, lasted for over two hours at state police headquarters.

He replaced Sadanand Date, who was shifted to Seth`s post, official sources said
Ahmed was appointed the new Additional Director General (Law and Order), replacing Satyapal Singh, who last week took over the high profile post of Mumbai Police Commissioner.
