Dehradun: The first woman Director General of Police (DGP), Kanchan Chaudhary Bhattacharya, passed away following an illness in Mumbai on Monday night.

Bhattachary, a 1973 batch IPS officer, made history when she was appointed the DGP of Uttarakhand in the year 2004. She retired as the DGP on October 31, 2007.

 

After retirement, she took a plunge into politics by contesting the 2014 Lok Sabha election on an Aam Aadmi Party's ticket from Haridwar constituency. However, she could not make it to the lower house of Parliament.

Uttarakhand Police in a Twitter post remembered Bhattacharya. "Uttarakhand Police expresses condolences on her demise and remembers her phenomenal contribution," it said.
