Ms. Mitra’s name featured in the media recently as a probable candidate to head the CBI on the basis of her seniority. Following her retirement on January 31, Ms. Mitra, a 1983-batch Madhya Pradesh-cadre IPS officer, claimed that in order to ensure that she does not get the top CBI post, despite having necessary qualifications, the Appointments Committee meeting was held a day after her retirement. Ms. Mitra, the first woman IPS officer of Bengal, said she was grateful to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for appointing her as the State’s security adviser.last_img
