Speculations are rife that West Bengal may get its first woman police chief soon as there is a greater possibility of the state government appointing Suman Bala Sahoo (IPS:1987:WB), a DGP rank officer as the next Top Cop. Presently, she is serving as DG, Communication of West Bengal Police.

Her name also features in the list containing the names of 11 officers that was sent to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) for consideration on the basis of seniority.

West Bengal DGP Virendra is scheduled to retire on August 31.
