Cuttack: Sunil Ray today took charge as the new Director-General (DG) of Fire Service and Home Guards at the head office here.

Ray replaced BK Sharma who was recently moved as OSD of the Home Department after charges of discrepancies surfaced against him.

According to sources, the action was initiated after the State Government came across gross irregularities in allotment of fire safety certificates to industries during Sharma's incumbency as the DG of Fire Services.

Taking charge Ray thanked the Odisha government for trusting him with this huge responsibility. He said, “The Home Guard department has always worked in collaboration with the Police department. We will work towards strengthening this collaboration. The Fire Services is more of an emergency service. My primary objective would be to effectively work towards betterment of both the department. As public servants our first and foremost duty is toward the public and to attend to their grievances.”
