BIG BLOW TO MAHARASHTRA POLICE CHIEF – CAT QUASHES A N ROY APPOINTMENT AS STATE DGP

a-n-roy-1The appointment of Maharashtra Director-General of Police (DGP) AN Roy was quashed by the central administrative tribunal, eight months after the state government picked him for the top post. CAT’s ruling came after a complaint last month by S. Chakraborthy, the DGP-Home Guards and Civil Defence, challenging the appointment. CAT judges have also directed the state government to appoint a new DGP within four weeks until which time Roy can continue in office. Roy’s appointment to the top post in the state police force in February this year had become controversial as he had superseded three other DGPs. Chakraborthy had contended that Roy was fourth in seniority and his appointment as DGP overlooked the prospects of three other DGPs – S.S. Virk, Chakraborthy himself and JD Virkar. CAT has directed that the new appointment must be made from among the three other DGPs only and Roy should not be considered for the top post. Bureau report – NMTV
