Prabhakar Aloka

Prabhakar Aloka joined the Indian Police Service in 1986, and was allotted Andhra Pradesh cadre. After a brief stint in the state, he joined Intelligence Bureau, the country’s premier intelligence agency. In nearly three decades of service in the Bureau, where he was rigorously trained in covert operations while in pursuit of hostile elements, Aloka served in counter-terror, counter-insurgency and anti-Naxalite theatres. Aloka attempts to delineate the life of a spy through his new book ‘Operation Haygreeva’. (Penguin Random House), based on the actual cases he has worked on and his experience in espionage.
