Amit Lodha was a man in uniform as his idol. His maternal grandfather was an IAS officer so he had a lot of respect for him. He was shy and never thought he would one day be an IPS officer. He wrote “Bihar Dairies”, which inspired the Netflix series “Khakee: The Bihar Chapter”.


Bihar’s 49-year-old IPS officer is part of a happy, small family. His mother and father are proud of their son’s achievements, as are his wife and children. Amit’s maternal grandfather, who was an IAS, is a reason for his inclination toward civil service. His father (Narendra Lodha), was a Sawai Mansingh Hospital doctor when he was growing up. Amit’s younger brother, who is reportedly also a government employee, is also known to be working.
