Infant IPS) (born June 23, 1952), was the former director general and inspector general of police (DGP & IG) in the state of Karnataka, India.[1][2] His appointment was announced by the Karnataka state home minister R. Ashoka on 31 of March 2012 following a state high court order directing the removal of its current DGP & IG Shankar Bidari and replacing the DGP & IG position with Infant. However Shankar Bidri was later given clean chit by Supreme Court of India clearing him of all baseless allegations.[3] He hails from Kerala. He was born in Paravoor in Kollam district.[4][5]
