Arora would look after the CGI’s well-expanded activities in the consular jurisdiction of Dubai and the five Northern Emirates of Sharjah, Umm Al Quwain, Ajman, Ras Al Khaima and Fujairah, top officials from the ministry of external affairs told this correspondent here.

Meanwhile, Sinha is being sent on a foreign assignment, possibly as an ambassador, for which no formal decision has been taken by the ministry. However, the decision on reallocation of ranks has already been considered by the top brass led by foreign secretary Shyam Saran.

Arora is to join his new assignment shortly.
