Dinendra Kashyap, a 1998 batch IPS officer of Kerela cadre, has been appointed as Senior Analyst- National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) at New Delhi.
The former Thiruvananthapuram City police chief, Kashyap is currently relieved on central deputation. He was replaced by 1995 batch IPS officer M R Ajith Kumar as the city’s top cop in August this year.
As per reports, Kashyap is known to be a non-controversial officer with an impeccable track record. The officer was earlier part of the CBI team that investigated several high-profile cases including the corruption case against former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Set up in 2004, NTRO is a technical intelligence gathering agency that works under the National Security Advisor in the Prime Minister’s Office. NTRO has the same “norms of conduct” as the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW).
