Swati Lakra takes over as DIG

Swati Lakra, an IPS Officer of the 1995 batch, has taken over as the new Deputy Inspector General of Visakhapatnam Range here on Friday.

Interacting with the media after assuming charge, she said that the by-elections in Payakaraopeta in Visakhapatnam district and Narasannapeta in Srikakulam district were on top of her agenda at the moment though her jurisdiction covered the three districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam.

Ms. Lakra said that the instructions of the Election Commission of India would be followed scrupulously. Asked whether she perceived any threat in the two Assembly segments going to the polls, she said that she was yet to conduct a review meet with the concerned SP s on the situation.

She, however, said that the police were prepared to meet any eventuality.

Pat for predecessors

Replying to queries, she said that the good work done by her predecessors to gain the confidence of the tribals would be continued. Superintendent of Police G. Srinivas was present.Courtesy-TheHindu.
