(02/05/2017) Noida : Not many IPS officers can boost of having a facebook fan page dedicated to them but SSP Luv Kumar is one such exception. This fierce, dynamic and quite renowned police officer is G B Nagar’s new SSP.
SSP Love Kumar has cracked Civil Services Examination in the year 2003.
Previously he has been posted in districts such as Gorakhpur, Moradabad, Hardoi, Aligarh etc. Before being transferred to GB Nagar he was posted in Saharanpur.
He was recently in news after his house was allegedly attacked by a large mob of 400-500 people led by BJP MP Raghav Lakhanpal. The matter pertained to cutting-short the route of an Ambedkar Jayanti procession, which had angered a certain section. However as per the facts, the procession was being taken through a very-sensitive area of the city despite denial of police permission. Luv Kumar’s intervention has in fact thwarted escalation of a probable communal event in the Sharanpur district.
The soft-spoken but strict officer:
Love Kumar has an image of being a non-nonsense officer. His honesty as well as his soft-spoken persona is much talked of in the administrative circles of UP. He has left an exceptional impact in the districts that he has been posted to so far. He has been posted in administratively significant as well as communally sensitive districts as well. G B Nagar is also considered a very sought after posting in the state and Love Kumar will have many areas to represent his capabilities and deliver a positive change.
Challenges he has:
Safety of foreigners in Greater Noida, especially African Citizens will be a prime area of concern for the incumbent SSP. Apart from foreigners a very large number of people from other districts and states stay in twin-cities of Noida and Greater Noida and they have often alleged of partiality by local police. He is known for a proactive and humanitarian policing. Though giving G B Nagar police a people friendly image can be a bit challenging but if Love Kumar excels to do that, he could be assured of an unforgettable place in districts history.
