New Delhi, June 12 :

The Narendra Modi government Thursday appointed senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi as the new attorney general of India.

Rohatgi, who appeared for the Gujarat government in several 2002 post-Godhra riot-related cases, will serve as attorney general of India for a period of three years, a statement said.

He succeeds G.E. Vahanvati who resigned following the rout of the Congress-led UPA in the 2014 general election.  (IANS)
