NARCO ON THE PROWL

India Today - - UPFRONT -

IPS of­fi­cer and for­mer CBI spe­cial direc­tor Rakesh Asthana took over as direc­tor gen­eral, Nar­cotics Con­trol Bureau, with­out much fan­fare. But the Gu­jarat cadre of­fi­cer’s name cropped up in home min­is­ter Amit Shah’s in­for­mal in­ter­ac­tion with North­east CMs and politi­cians in Guwahati. Urg­ing the CMs to crack down on drug deals in the re­gion, Shah gave them three months to iden­tify and dis­suade politi­cians in­volved in these deals. Asthana, he told them, would soon start mak­ing reg­u­lar trips.
