It will be history in the making if Mumbai is to get its first female police commissioner. That will happen if the current holder of the post Sanjay Barve does not get an extension when his term expires on August 31.
The lady in question is Rashmi Shukla. The competition she faces is from Parambir Singh, the director general of the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Should she be appointed commissioner, she will be the first woman to hold the post. She has also served as police commissioner in Pune. Currently she is state intelligence commissioner.
