Rajinder Khanna is new RAW chief

The Narendra Modi-led NDA government on Saturday appointed Rajinder Khanna as the new chief of India’s external spy agency, Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW), while Prakash Mishra has been made the new Director General of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). According to reports, the appointments committee of the Cabinet headed by Narendra Modi issued the above two orders.

“There was a demand from the R&AW to make its chief from the internal officers instead of bringing IPS officer from outside,” a PMO official said. Khanna has led the agency’s counter-terror operations in recent years. With his appointment as new RAW chief, Khanna will have to rebuild the agency which is devastated by internal feuds, staff shortages and technology deficits.
