Sh. Sanjay A. Lathkar, IPS, IGP WS CRPF in an Interaction meet at WS HQR. Western Sector

     Taking over as IGP Western Sector on 28th December 2019 has been a development of immense pride and honour, rendering me an opportunity to contribute and serve its rich legacy.

      Established in 1991 with Headquarters at CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai, Operational Jurisdiction of Western Sector spans across the States of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa including Union Territories of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu.

      Administrative Control of the Sector is over 3 Ranges, 3 GCs along with their 15 Battalions, 3 Composite Hospitals and 1 CWS. This also includes Administrative authority in core operational pockets of the Country viz 4 Battalions each in LWE and J&K, 3 Battalions in North East and 2 in SOZ.

        Especially with regard to Maharashtra, Western Sector has remained committed in eliminating the Naxal menace from Gadchiroli district. Anti Naxal Operations are being launched relentlessly in this region in great synergy with State Police. With decisive upper hand over Maoists for quite some time now, we are hopeful that our collective endeavour will be able to get rid of this challenge very soon.
