Praveen Kakkar is a former police officer and Congress politician. He was a member of MP State Police Service, but used to wield more power than IPS officers. The reason was his close proximity with Congress politicians.
Praveen was an Inspector when he came in touch with Kantilal Bhuria in Jhabua. He befriended him and when Bhuria became minister in the UPA – I, Praveen became his personal secretary. Since then, there is no looking back.
Interestingly, Praveen is made the OSD of Kamal Nath, the current CM of MP. Income Tax department has, recently, raided Praveen’s premises recently and has recovered assets disproportionate to his known income.
