Roy appointed as Maharashtra ACB chief

Mumbai, Aug 16 (PTI) Senior IPS officer A N Roy has been appointed as chief of the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB). The post was lying vacant following S Chakravarty's retirement this June.

Senior IPS officers Himanshu Roy, S Ramanand and Ashutosh Dumbre have also been transferred, ministry sources said here.

Himanshu Roy, Additional Commissioner of Police (South region) will be the new Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order).

The 1988 batch officer replaces K L Prasad, who has been appointed Commissioner of the State Intelligence Department.

Ramanand, additional Commissioner of Police (Special Branch), has been put in charge of anti-naxalite operations.

The state government has stepped up anti-naxal operations in Gadchiroli, Chandrapur and Nagpur.
