IPS Rishi Kumar Shukla has been appointed as the new director of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) by the PM-led panel on Saturday.
The 1983-batch IPS officer of Madhya Pradesh cadre is at present chairman of the Madhya Pradesh Police Housing Corporation.
The officer has also worked in the Intelligence Bureau.
Rishi Kumar Shukla is also known for his work against terrorism. He will lead the country’s premier investigative agency for two years.
He would take over the charge of the agency from interim chief M Nageswara Rao, who was appointed after CBI director Alok Verma was shunted out. The post had been vacant since the exit of Mr Verma, who had been engaged in a bitter fight with his deputy Rakesh Asthana over corruption allegations.
