Kula Saikia named as new DGP of Assam Police
Kula Saikia, a 1985 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer has reportedly, been selected as the next Assam Police DGP. The state Security Commission had earlier prepared a list five senior-most police officials including Saikia.

Saikia, an economist, earlier taught economics at the Hindu College of Delhi University. He received Fullbright Fellowship in economics in 2000. An alumnus of the Cotton College, Guwahati and Delhi University, Saikia is also an acclaimed short-story writer and a columnist. He was awarded Sahitya Academy Award in 2016.
