Aruna Bahuguna - National Police Academy set to have first woman boss

National Police Academy, the Hyderabad-based alma mater for IPS officers in the country, could soon get a woman chief for the first time in its history.
Aruna Bahuguna, a 1979-batch IPS officer, is tipped to be appointed as the new director of the 65-year-old institution, also known as the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), which is tasked with the training of police leaders.
Ms. Bahuguna (56), who belongs to the Andhra Pradesh cadre, is at present posted as the Special Director General in the country’s largest paramilitary force, CRPF, at its headquarters in the national capital.
The orders for Ms. Bahuguna’s appointment as the new director of the academy would be issued soon, sources said.
The officer, who has served in various positions with Andhra Pradesh police, also holds the distinction of being the first woman SDG in CRPF. She is the second-in-command of the 3 lakh strong force, after the DG.
The post of NPA Director fell vacant after incumbent Subhas Goswami was last month appointed as the DG of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).
