    Former Assam DGP Khagen Sarma Passes Away

    Former Assam Director General of Police Khagen Sarma passed away at around 7.15 pm on October 25th, 2019 following a prolonged illness. The DGP was suffering from cancer and undergoing treatment at the Sun Valley Hospital in the city.

    The 1982-batch IPS officer of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre took charge as the DGP after the retirement of the then DGP Jayanta Narayan Choudhury.

    He, who helmed the special branch (SB) of Assam police for over a decade, had played a key role in bringing many militant groups to the negotiating table. Sarma had played an important role as Sub-Divisional police Officer in Majuli, the island district now, in 1990 in neutralising the activities of United Liberation Front of Asom.
