Satyajit Mohanty took charge as the Twin City Police Commissioner

Bhubaneswar:3/8/18: IPS officer Satyajit Mohanty today took charge as the Twin City Police Commissioner at the office of Commissionerate Police here replacing YB Khurania.

After receiving guard of honour at the office of Commissionerate Police, Mohanty took the charge from the former Police Commissioner.

With this, the 1988-batch IPS officer has become the sixth Police Commissioner of the Twin City. Mohanty had started his career as an ASP in Jeypore in 1990. Meanwhile, Khurania has been transferred as the ADG of Police (Provisioning).


“It’s a huge responsibility and an opportunity as well, to serve the people. I will try to gain the confidence of the public and ensure better policing,” said Mohanty.
