Kathmandu, February 11
The government on Tuesday decided to promote DIG Thakur Prasad Gyawaly to the position of Inspector General of Nepal Police. A Cabinet meeting held this afternoon endorsed the proposal tabled by Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa.
The new IGP has been made on the day the retirement of the incumbent Sarbendra Khanal. As all additional inspectors general (AIG) are retiring along with Khanal, Gyawaly was the most senior official among those yet to retire in the organisation.
Besides him, DIG Tarini Prasad Lamsal was also qualified, but the government picked him on the basis of seniority.
Gyawali was working as the chief of Province 1 Police Office, Biratnagar. He will lead the organisation for the next five months as he is also approaching his retirement date.
