Shillong: Meghalaya government on Friday appointed Peter James Pyngrope Hanneman as the new Director General of Police (DGP) in the state, official sources said.

The 1979 batch Assam-Meghalaya cadre IPS officer is expected to take charge on Monday.
Prior to his appointment as the DGP, Hanneman was posted in the Centre.
Meghalaya has been without a full-fledged DGP after Kulbir Krishan was removed from his post prior to the assembly election in February.
Krishan was removed on the instruction of the Election Commission after it received complaints against him from the State Government.
