Senior IPS officer Vivek Phansalkar to take over as Mumbai's new police commissioner

Mumbai/IBNS: Senior IPS officer Vivek Phansalkar has been appointed as the new Mumbai police commissioner.

A 1989-batch IPS officer, Vivek Phansalkar was serving as the DG and MD of the Police Housing and Welfare Corporation.

He will succeed incumbent commissioner of police Sanjay Pandey who is scheduled to retire Thursday.

Phansalkar will take over as the chief of the over 40,000-strong force at a time when the state is going through a political tumult. He will take charge on the day the state government will face a floor test.

The development comes after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray resigned minutes after the Supreme Court allowed the floor test to prove his government's majority.
