The Tripura Government has demoted a senior IPS officer

The officer was allegedly given “illegal ad hoc” promotion despite the CBI filing a criminal case against him for “possessing” disproportionate assets, from the rank of the DGP to the IGP. In an order issued last week, the Tripura Government said K Nagaraj, a 1983 batch IPS officer, had been promoted to the rank of the Director General of Police despite the fact that criminal and disciplinary proceedings were pending against him.

Chief Minister Conrad Sangma today announced that Ranikor would be upgraded to a civil subdivision soon and that the roads in the area would be repaired.

Addressing a gathering at Ranikor along with his Cabinet colleagues, Sangma said that the area has remained neglected and is devoid of even the basic infrastructure.

Saweety Boora was the lone Indian boxer to clinch a gold, while two others signed off with silver medals in the Umakhanov Memorial Tournament in Kaspiysk, Russia today.

Saweety, who is also a former world championships silver-medallist, prevailed over home favourite Anna Anfinogenova in an unanimous verdict to finish on top in the middleweight (75kg) category. However, in the men’s draw, Brijesh Yadav (81kg) and Virender Kumar (91kg) lost their respective summit clashes to end with silver medals. While Yadav lost to Russia’s Murad Rabadanov, Kumar was beaten by Sweden’s Alexandr Mvalbale.
Earlier, world youth champion Shashi Chopra (57kg), former Commonwealth Games bronze-medallist Pinki Jangra (51kg) and Pavitra (60kg) had lost their respective semifinal bouts to settle for bronze medals. Among the men, world bronze-medallist Gaurav Bidhuri (56kg) had finished with a bronze after going down in his semifinal bout.
