Ayob Khan is new head of Bukit Aman NCID

KUALA LUMPUR: Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay (pic) has been appointed as the new Bukit Aman Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) director.

The Johor police chief will be taking over from Comm Datuk Razarudin Husain, who is the new Deputy Inspector-General of Police, replacing Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim, who has retired.

Royal Malaysia Police secretary Deputy Comm Ruslan Khalid said Kedah police chief Comm Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat will take over as Johor police chief.

“Bukit Aman Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) deputy director Deputy Comm Wan Hassan Wan Ahmad will take over as Kedah police chief with the rank of commissioner,” he said in a statement.

DCP Ruslan said all transfers would come into effect on Jan 25.

Comm Ayob Khan, 55, took charge as the Johor police chief on March 6 last year. Prior to that, he was at the forefront of Bukit Aman’s efforts against terrorism for years.

He once led the Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division (E8) in combating terrorism, and was instrumental in the division’s success in thwarting various terror plots and nabbing over 500 militants since February 2013.
