In a major reshuffle in Tamil Nadu, IPS officer A Arun has been appointed the Chennai Commissioner of Police, replacing Director General of Police (DGP) Sandeep Rai Rathore who has been downgraded to DGP, Training.

Sandeep, a 1992 batch IPS officer, was appointed as the Chennai Commissioner of Police in June 2023. He also served as the Deputy Commissioner of Police in Coimbatore City during the 1998 serial bomb blasts, the Deputy Commissioner - Traffic (North Chennai), and the first Commissioner of Police of Avadi Commissionerate among other posts. He will now hold the additional charge of the post of ADGP/Director of Tamil Nadu Police Academy.

The Tamil Nadu BSP chief was murdered around 7.30 pm on July 5 by bike-borne miscreants in front of his house in Perambur.
