NSG, CISF get new chiefs

Senior IPS officer JN Choudhury has been appointed as head of National Security Guard (NSG) in place of Arvind Ranjan who will take over as the full-time chief of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

The Union home ministry issued the orders on Thursday on the appointments to the two important central security forces.

Choudhury, who has been appointed as the new DG of the premier ‘Black Cats’ counter-terror force, is due to retire in May, 2015.

A 1978-batch IPS officer of Assam-Meghalaya cadre, he has served in the Intelligence Bureau (IB) for a number of years before he took over as Assam Police chief last year. The NSG has specific tasks of undertaking special counterterror and counterhijack operations. Ranjan, a 1977-batch officer of Kerala cadre with a wide experience in central paramilitary forces, took over the full charge of the 1.47-lakh strong CISF on Thursday at its headquarters here.
