History of DIA of Andijan Region
History testifies that the establishment of the Internal Affairs in Andijan started from November 10, 1917. The People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs declared a resolution on the "Working Militia." This historic document became the basis for establishing a people's militia to set the country's order under the leadership of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies. On December 11, 1917, the Andijan workers'-peasants' district-city militia was formed. This day is the day of the establishment of the Andijan Department of Internal Affairs.
On March 6, 1941, the Andijan region was established. And on March 17, 1941, by order of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of Uzbekistan, an organizational department was founded for the Andijan region. In October 1941, this department was changed into the Department of Internal Affairs of Andijan region.
The first head of the department was thirty-year-old Sergey Mikhalyans, a graduate of the Moscow State Law Institute. Earlier he worked as first deputy head of the police department of Ferghana region. After seven years of service as first deputy head, he was appointed as head of the Department of Internal Affairs of Andijan region. Soon he was sent to the Department of Internal Affairs of Samarkand region. Nurmat Tukhtasinov, who was born and raised in the village of Abdullabi, Jalakuduk district replaced him in Andijan region.
