Highly placed sources have told PTI that the decision has been conveyed to the 75-year-old leader, who will succeed Nikhil Kumar, a former Delhi Police Commissioner.
There has, however, been no official confirmation of Ms Dikshit’s appointment from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Mr Kumar is expected to resign shortly. Sources said the former Congress MP is keen to contest Lok Sabha polls from Aurangabad in Bihar. [PTI]
