Lakshadweep:Lakshadweep administrator and former intelligence bureau director Dineshwar Sharma dies

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday paid tribute to Lakshadweep administrator Dineshwar Sharma, who passed away today.

“Administrator of Lakshadweep Shri Dineshwar Sharma Ji made long lasting contributions to India’s policing and security apparatus. He handled many sensitive counter terror and insurgency ops during his policing career. Anguished by his demise. Condolences to his family. Om Shanti,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

A Kerala Cadre IPS Officer, Sharma joined the Indian Police Service (IPS) in 1979. He joined the Intelligence Bureau as Assistant Director in January 1991.

During his service, Sharma handled a number of assignments including counter insurgency operations in Jammu and Kashmir and the Northeast.

He was also appointed an interlocutor for Jammu and Kashmir in 2017. In this role, he held dialogues with the elected representatives, various organisations and concerned individuals in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sharma was awarded the prestigious Indian Police Medal for the meritorious service in 1997 followed by the President’s Police Medal for Distinguished Service in 2003.
