Four contempt notices served on UP’s top bureaucrat


The Lucknow bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on Wednesday issued four contempt notices against Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar for defying its order for disposing of the representations of IPS officer Amitabh Thakur who is facing departmental enquiries.

Previously, the CAT had directed the Uttar Pradesh government to decide within one month whether the four departmental enquiries pending against the Indian Police Service (IPS) officer need to be quashed on the grounds of huge delay which it failed to comply with.

The bench of Justice Vishnu Chandra Gupta and Devendra Chaudhary passed the order and fixed the next hearing for September 13.
