Sandhu, High Commissioner of India to Sri Lanka, will have to immediately land on his feet in Washington as US President Donald Trump has agreed to PM Narendra Modi’s request for an India visit with the earliest probable date being mentioned as the last week of February.

Jawed Ashraf, High Commissioner of Singapore, will be the next Indan envoy to France, replacing Kwatra who is being shifted to Nepal in place of Manjeev Singh Puri who has retired. Ashraf was with the Prime Minister’s Office before being replaced by Bagley who also moves out as the Indian High Commissioner in Colombo.

Raveesh Kumar, the MEA spokesperson, will fill the vacancy created in Austria by the summoning of previous incumbent Renu Pall to the headquarters here for alleged misdemeanours. — TNS
