Srinagar, September 20:

Dilbag Singh will continue as interim  DGP  of Jammu and Kashmir  till  the State Government appoints a regular police chief  in the next few weeks .

It is certain that the State government is clearly inclined to confirm  Dilbag Singh as the State police chief who was appointed  as an interim police chief on the night of September 6 and 7 , sources said.

Although the State government has submitted five names  R Doley, Naveen Aggarwal, V K Singh,  S M Sahai and Dilbag Singh to the Union Public Service Commission  for consideration , yet it is amply clear that the State administration headed by Governor Satya Pal Malik , has thrown its weight behind Dilbag Singh .

Meanwhile the state has been asked by the  Supreme Court to finalise the name of the new DGP  by  second week of November .
