Singh, a 1991 batch IPS officer of Assam-Meghalaya cadre, is working as Inspector General (Intelligence) in the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved extension in his services for two years beyond November 04, 2018, the order issued by the Personnel Ministry said.
