Newly appointed Inspector General (IG) of Police Prakash Aryal has instructed police officials and personnel to work diligently for local level elections and constitution implementation.
Addressing his subordinates in an event organised at the Nepal Police Headquarters, IG Aryal asked them to exercise restraint.
“Nepal Police has been a people-centric force and transparent. We respect human rights and my leadership will always uphold them,” said IG Aryal.
The government on Monday appointed Aryal to the post of inspector general.
A hours-long Cabinet meeting, which sat on Monday after a hiatus of three weeks, decided to pick Aryal from among four contenders—Aryal himself, Nawaraj Silwal, Bam Bahadur Bhandari and Jaya Bahadur Chand—after reviewing the marks the four top officials had accumulated in the last four years based on their performance, qualification, seniority and prize among others. Aryal, who joined police force as inspector on April 11, 1988 was promoted to the post of DIG on December 19, 2012 along with Silwal, Chand and Bhandari.
Aryal was conferred insignia by Home Secretary Lok Darshan Regmi on Monday night and assumed office the same night. Dinesh Chandra Pokharel, who was serving as acting IG since February second week, and other senior police officials were present at the programme.
While welcoming Aryal, Pokharel also urged him to focus on bringing reforms in the police department.
