Senior IPS officer Anand Lal Banerjee is the new director-general of police (DGP) in Uttar Pradesh.
Banerjee was till now heading the vigilance department of the state as DG. With a clean image, Banerjee is seen as an upright officer who has maintained a low profile all through his service till date and has no controversy attached to his name as well. He is among the few senior IPS officers who are known to have no political leanings by and large.
Banerjee is the fourth police chief of Uttar Pradesh in the last two years of Samajwadi Party rule. When the Samajwadi Party government came to power on March 15, 2012, senior IPS officer Atul was heading the state police. He was, later, replaced by Deo Raj Nagar who retired on December 31, 2013, passing the baton to Rizwan Ahmed. Baneerjee took over the charge from Rizwan Ahmed.
