New Delhi, Oct 18 (IANS) IPS officer Anup Kumar Singh was on Friday chosen as the new Director General of the elite National Security Guard (NSG) force.

The Appointment Committee of the Cabinet on Friday approved the Home Ministry's proposal to appoint the 1985-batch Gujarat cadre Indian Police Service officer to the post.

Singh would take charge from Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) Director General S.S. Deswal, who is holding additional charge of the post since the superannuation of Sudeep Lakhtakia on July 31.
