MUM­BAI: The Mum­bai po­lice are set to get a new chief on Satur­day with the in­cum­bent, Ah­mad Javed, va­cat­ing the post to take over as the In­dian am­bas­sador to Saudi Ara­bia. Javed is likely to be re­placed by DD Pad­sal­gikar, a 1982-batch IPS of­fi­cer, who has re­turned to the state po­lice cadre on Jan­uary 14 af­ter serv­ing in the in­tel­li­gence bureau (IB) for more than a decade.

Speak­ing to the me­dia on Fri­day, Javed said he may write a book on his 36-year-long ca­reer in the po­lice force. “I am im­mensely sat­is­fied with my ten­ure in the state cadre and with the steps taken to make the sys­tem ro­bust,” said Javed, while evad­ing a ques­tion on who would suc­ceed him.

Javed also spoke about the re­cently launched twit­ter han­dles of the Mum­bai po­lice and CP Mum­bai. “Hav­ing pres­ence on so­cial me­dia was the need of the hour and we are do­ing well with all this baatchit (con­ver­sa­tion) be­tween the po­lice and the com­mon peo­ple,” he said.
