Pachnanda selected as new Calcutta Police Commissioner

Calcutta, March 17 (PTI): The Election Commission today selected R K Pachnanda as the new Commissioner of Calcutta Police from a list of three IPS officers and referred his name to the West Bengal government.

The move comes a day after the EC directed the state government to replace the incumbent officer from the post as his tenure had crossed three years.

“The Election Commission has considered the three-member panel of IPS officers sent to it by the state government on direction and selected the name of R K Pachnanda as the city police Commissioner,” additional chief electoral officer N K Sahana said here today.

The EC decision in this regard has been referred to the state chief secretary Samar Ghosh, Sahana said.

An official announcement to this effect by the state government is pending.

R K Pachnanda, a 1984 batch of IPS, holds the post of special Additional Commissioner (I) of police at present.

The EC for the first time had yesterday directed the state government to replace Gautam Mohan Chakraborty as the police commissioner.
