Earlier this month, Additional DCP of Delhi Police, Rohit Yadav, tested positive for COVD-19 and recovered from the disease. The 2015 batch IPS officer will rejoin duty on Monday. He is currently the Additional DCP Shahdara in the North East of New Delhi.
Notably, the officer was injured during the riots in New Delhi in December in the wake of the CAA-NRC protests. Yadav was leading his forces from the front when a violent mob forcibly overtook a police officer to injure a police officer.
In a tweet, his colleague Batchmate Sarvana Vivek M, who is in charge of SP Raigad district, wrote, “Rohit Yadav was injured during the IPS, front-led riots in New Delhi.” He has inspired men and women in uniforms through his commitment and sacrifice. “
Interestingly, Rohit is the son of former Delhi Police ACP Rajbir Singh. Known as the Encounter Specialist. Singh was shot dead by a property dealer in Gurgaon in 2006. Rajbir Singh was facing terrorism in the national capital. Rajbir was the only officer in police history to be promoted to the post of ACP in just 13 years.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Rohit joined IPS in 2015. He finished school from DPS RK Puram and then persuaded Mechanical Engineering from Delhi Technical University.
