Home Ministry sources said a need was felt for his to stay back in New Delhi considering the possible release of the juvenile convict in the 2012 Delhi gang rape case, Parliament being in session on Friday and appearance of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in a Delhi court on Saturday.

While there is a buzz that he got himself exempted due to some personal reasons.

The conference is taking place at Dhordo village, around 80 kilometres from district headquarters Bhuj, between December 18 and 20 and is being attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Apart from all the DGPs and IGs of all the states and union territories, heads of National Investigation Agency, Central Bureau of Investigation, IB, narcotics department and various police training academies are taking part in the conference organised by Central Intelligence Bureau.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and his deputy Union Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary are also attending the event.

Among issues related to internal security, the top police officers of the country are discussing ways to thwart attempts by Islamic State to spread its base in the country.

Last year, the conference was held at Guwahati (Assam) in November.
