Long serving Malaysian federal narcotics police officer ACP Dalbir Singh Tanah Singh has landed a promotion that makes him the senior most serving Sikh police officer in Malaysia.
The wonderful news comes just as the Sikh community worldwide prepare to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak.
ACP Dalbir has been appointed as Bukit Aman Narcotics CID (Property Forfeiture) principal assistant director with the rank of acting Senior Assistant Commissioner (SAC), effective 25 Nov 2019, according to a federal police statement released on Thursday (24 Oct).
