S N Shrivastava from CRPF is Delhi’s special police commissioner
New Delhi, Feb 26: The 1985 IPS batch officer S N Shrivastava from the CRPF has appointed special commissioner, law and order, Delhi.

Shrivastava was posted as the special director in the CRPF. Incidentally he is the first in line to take over as Delhi police commissioner when the term of Amulya Patnaik gets over. Shrivastava has experience of working in Delhi and he has held several posts. He has also been part of the Special Cell, which led investigations against the Indian Mujahideen.
He would join immediately and monitor the violent protests against the citizenship law.
Union Home Minister has since Sunday reviewed the situation in Delhi thrice. He has called for high level meetings to take stock of the situation.
