Assistant Commissioner of Police Farhad Fikry has been appointed as the Acting Commissioner of Police.
Following former Commissioner of Police Mohamed Hameed’s retirement last week, the position of Acting CP was initially filled by Deputy CP Abdul Mannan Yoosuf. However, Mannan is set to retire on November 25, and is currently on leave.
DCP Ali Rasheed is also set to retire with Mannan.
