Suspension of IAS Officer who checked PM Modi’s Chopper put on hold

Suspension of IAS Officer who checked PM Modi’s Chopper put on hold

Mangalore Today News Network

Bengaluru, Apr 25, 2019 : The suspension of an IAS officer who had checked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s helicopter in Odisha’s Sambalpur last week has been stayed by the Central Administrative Tribunal. The Election Commission had suspended Mohammed Mohsin, saying that he "had not acted in conformity" with instructions on Special Protection Group (SPG) protectees, NDTV reported.



However, opposition parties had expressed outrage at the move, saying there was no rule which exempts anyone from such checks during polls.

Mohammed Mohsin, a 1996 batch Karnataka cadre IAS (Indian Administrative Service) officer, had been accused of "insubordination and dereliction of duty".

Reports say as a general observer of Sambalpur constituency, the officer had carried out a sudden check of PM Modi’s helicopter, which delayed the Prime Minister by 15 minutes.

The Central Administrative Tribunal, which resolves disputes over appointments in public services, will hear the case again on June 3, after the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Idiotic act by an reputed IAS Officer as he misconducted . He is our PM and there are certain rules bound by constitution which he needs follow before taking such a action , Really disappointed with this act. He should be suspended for few months
