Dimapur, July 20: Interlocutor for Naga peace talks RN Ravi was appointed as the new Governor of Nagaland by the President of India on Saturday.
Ravi, a 1976-batch Indian Police Service officer (retired) of the Kerala cadre, will replace P B Acharya, who is the current governor of Nagaland and Manipur.
Ravi, who is the deputy national security adviser (NSA), took over as Centre’s representative for Naga peace talks in 2014.
Ravi has worked closely with National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval during the latter’s stint as Intelligence Bureau Director. While working with Ajit Doval at the Intelligence Bureau, he was in charge of the northeast desk. He retired as Intelligence Bureau Special Director in 2012.
