New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government Thursday appointed senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi as the new Attorney General of India.

Rohatgi, who appeared for the Gujarat government in several 2002 post-Godhra riot-related cases, will serve as Attorney General of India for a period of three years, a statement said.

He succeeds GE Vahanvati who resigned following the rout of the Congress-led UPA in the 2014 general election.
