New Delhi [India], October 3 (ANI): Anis Dayal Singh, the Director General of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) was given the additional charge of Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Chief on Monday.

"The undersigned is directed to refer to the subject mentioned above and to say that consequent upon appointment of Shri S L Thaosen, IPS (MP:88) DG, SSB as DG, CRPF."
"The competent authority has approved that Anish Dayal Singh, IPS (MA:88), DG, ITBP shall hold additional charge of the post of DG, SSB till the appointment and joining of the regular incumbent or until further orders whichever is earlier," read the MHA memorandum.
