TIRUCHI: K.C. Mahali assumed charge as the Inspector General of Police, Central Zone, here on Wednesday. He succeeded K. Vanniaperumal who has been transferred and posted as Inspector General of Police, West Zone.

A 1989-batch IPS officer, Mr. Mahali was earlier Inspector General of Police / Member Secretary, Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board in Chennai.

He had also served as IG, Railways and IG (Establishment) in the Director General of Police Office.

He had a stint with the Intelligence Bureau where he served as Assistant Director in New Delhi and Bhubaneswar. A native of Mayurbhanj district in Orissa, IG Mahali was awarded the President Police Medal in 2005 for his meritorious service.

He was also awarded Prince Michael International Road Safety Award (United Kingdom) in 2006.

In a brief interaction with the media here shortly after assuming charge, IG Mahali said priority would be accorded to maintaining law and order in the Central Zone, comprising eight districts. The focus of the law enforcers would be to bring down crimes and initiate action against anti-social elements as per law.

The focus would also be on solving long-pending cases which were “under investigation” stage using scientific methods, he said. Investigation kits distributed to police stations would be utilised to achieve breakthrough in these cases.

Special drives would be taken up in all districts falling under the Central Zone to curb illicit distillation and check transportation of illicit liquor.

A coordinated effort with the district administration and highway authorities would be taken to reduce accidents, IG Mahali said.
