Guwahati: Assam cop Anand Mishra, a 2011 batch IPS officer of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre has tendered his resignation to the Chief Secretary of the State. The letter sent to the Chief Secretary on December 18, came to the public domain on Tuesday evening.
In a not much surprising move, Superintendent of Police of Lakhimpur district of Assam, Anand Mishra has sent his resignation to the Chief Secretary. He has tendered his unconditional resignation from the IPS with effect from January 16, 2024.
Addressing a letter to the chief secretary, SP Mishra wrote, “This is to submit my unconditional resignation from the IPS to pursue a life of freedom and independence that I want to realize through various social services and other means that are beyond the mandate of IPS.”
Top sources in the BJP have meanwhile confirmed to Republic Digital that Mishra will be joining the party in the month of January. He wants to contest for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections as a BJP candidate from Vaishali Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar.
It is worth mentioning that, Mishra has been a very active cop and had won the love and support of the people of the State through various endeavours he took to control the crime particularly in the districts of Dhubri, Nagaon and Lakhimpur as the police Superintendent of these districts where he served in chronological order. He also has got a large social media following with people often dubbing him as a super cop of the state.
