Ahmedabad:  Senior IPS officer Shivanand Jha, who was part of the special team that probed post-Godhra riots, was yesterday appointed new Police Commissioner of Ahmedabad.



Jha was Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) prior to his current appointment. The 53-year-old officer replaces S K Saikia, who retired yesterday.

“Jha is the new Ahmedabad Police Commissioner. He will assume charge today,” in-charge DGP Pramod Kumar said.
