The Punjab Government on 25 October 2015 appointed Suresh Arora, a 1982-batch IPS officer, as the Director General of Police (DGP). The appointment came after the government removed Sumedh Singh Saini from the post of DGP.

Suresh Arora, who has a spotless record, had played a pivotal role in fighting terrorism. He was posted in Amritsar as Superintendent of Police (SP) and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) when Operation Black Thunder I and II were conducted.

Arora obtained his masters degree in law from the University of London. He has won various gallantry medals and awards, including the President's Meritorious Medal, the Distinguished Service Medal and the Prakram Medal.

Removal of Sumedh Singh Saini from the post

Reportedly, Saini was removed from the post due people's anger towards the police after two Sikhs were killed in a protest against the sacrilege of holy books in Faridkot's Behbalkalan village on 14 October 2015.

He is accused of human rights violations, and is also facing a CBI probe in relation to illegal arrest of some of the accomplices, relatives and father of Khalistan Liberation Force militant Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar.
