Former Bihar DGP (Director General of Police) Gupteshwar Pandey, who took voluntary retirement from active service, today joined the Janata Dal (United).

He joined the JD(U) at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s residence in Patna, Bihar. On joining JD(U), he said that he was personally invited by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to join the party. “I do not understand politics. I am a simple person who has spent his time working for the downtrodden section of society,” he said.

Pandey who is a 1987 batch IPS officer had earlier served as zonal IG at Muzaffarpur. He served at various posts including SP, Range DIG, ADG Headquarter and DG BMC.
