In a first, female IPS officer to head terrorist-hit Srinagar sector for CRPF

In a first, a lady IPS officer is now tipped to head terrorist-hit Srinagar sector of CRPF. 1996-batch Telangana cadre officer Charu Sinha has been appointed as the Inspector General (IG) for CRPF’s Srinagar sector.
An illustrious officer, Charu has earlier served as the IG of Bihar sector of CRPF and has dealt with naxals. Multiple anti-naxal operations have been carried out under her directives.
She was later transferred to Jammu where she served as IG and earned accolades for her professional accomplishments. The official order appointing her as the IG of Srinagar sector was issued on Monday.

Current Director-General CRPF AP Maheshwari headed the Srinagar sector as IG in 2005.
The sector, which started functioning in 2005, never had a female officer at the IG level. This sector involved in anti-terror operations and closely work with the Indian Army along with Jammu and Kashmir police.

“Srinagar sector is located at Brein Nishat, Srinagar (J-K). It started functioning in 2005. Srinagar Sector has operational jurisdiction over three districts of J-K- Budgam, Ganderbal, and Srinagar and Union Territory of Ladakh,” CRPF said.
