About Rakesh Asthana
Rakesh Asthana is an Indian Police Service official of the 1984-bunch Gujarat Cadre was filling in as the Director General of Border Security Force.
On 30th June, 2021 after the retirement of SN Shrivastava, Balaji Srivastava was given the extra charge of Delhi Police by the public authority yet there was no sign that this charge given to him was transitory.
Rakesh Asthana, has recently headed the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). He was excused in a 2018 pay off body of evidence which was enrolled against him by Alok Verma, the then Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) boss. Mr. Asthana had held the post of the exceptional chief in CBI. In the year 2019 the public authority of India moved out Asthana and Verma after a run in of the two top officials of the office and it undermined the working of CBI. In May, he was the leader to be designated as the head of CBI yet was dropped after NV Ramana, Chief Justice of India, brought up a decision of the Supreme Court that says that no official ought to be named to a top police work with under a half year of residency left.
