Arvind Kumar Is New Intelligence Bureau Head

By Preeti Sigh On 26 Jun, 2019

The government today appointed new chiefs of the country's two intelligence units. Samant Goel, who was in charge of operations of the country's external intelligence agency -- the Research and Analysis Wing or RAW -- will take over as its chief, replacing Anil Dhamsana. Arvind Kumar, the number two at the Kashmir desk of the Intelligence Bureau, will replace Rajiv Jain at the top post. "The Home Minister has signed the file and it has gone to PMO," a senior officer in the Prime Minister's Office told NDTV. Both officials will take charge on June 30. Both Mr Goel and Mr Kumar are IPS officers from the 1984 batch. Mr Goel has helped handle the Punjab militancy when it was at its peak in the 1990s and was posted in Dubai and London. "He was posted as in-charge consular in Dubai and also as in London," a senior officer in the home ministry told Arvind Kumar, an officer from the Assam Meghalaya cadre, headed the agency in Bihar. Before that, he looked after its administration and inquiry branches for long.
