IPS MEENU CHAUDHARY IS IN CBI NOW
Mrs. Meenu Chaudhary has been relieved to join CBI as Superintendent of Police (SP).
Meenu Chaudhary, 37, daughter of a retired chief engineer from the Military Engineering Service, joined the Indian Police Service (IPS) in the year 2000. She is an Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre officer. A BA (Honours) in sociology and an MBA, Chaudhary had always wanted to be a civil servant. “My father wanted me to join the civil services and I grew up with this thought in mind,” she says. Chaudhary made it a point not to appear for any placement interviews after completing her MBA in 1998 and before writing the Civil Service exam in 1999. Her optional paper in the preliminary exam was sociology; and the two papers she chose for the mains were public administration and sociology.
“The IPS is mainly responsible for the internal security of the country, maintenance of law and order, control and detection of crime and ensuring peace by enforcing the law of the land,” says Chaudhary, now a Deputy Commissioner of Police ( DCP), in Delhi Police. Unlike other services, a lot of power is vested with an IPS officer, “like ensuring instant justice for an aggrieved person,” says Chaudhry. “Criminal justice will take its own course but if a distressed person comes to us we can provide immediate relief to him or her, thus making a difference to society,” she adds. And it is this zeal to serve the society that finally made her choose the IPS.
Govt. of India has approved induction of the 3 IPS officers namely Ms Meenu Choudhary, IPS(AGMU-2000), Shri Keshav Ram Chaurasia, IPS(JK-2003) and Shri Sonal Agnihotri, IPS (HP-2004) as Superintendents of Police in CBI on deputation basis for an initial tenure of 4 years from the date of assumption of charge of the post, as per IPS Tenure Policy, 2010.
