Mayawati sacks 7,400 more recruits, suspends 7 IPS officers

Special Correspondent


The recruitments were made during Mulayam’s regime

Action based on probe panel report


LUCKNOW: In the third instalment of cancelling the recruitment of police and Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) constables made during the Mulayam Singh regime in 2005-2006, the Mayawati Government on Sunday sacked 7,400 more recruits and suspended 7 more IPS officers.

With the Sunday’s action, the Bahujan Samaj Party government had sacked a total of 17,848 police and PAC recruits, besides suspending 25 IPS officers of the rank of the IG, DIG and the SSP. Earlier, 6,504 and 3,964 recruits had been sacked in two separate instalments after an inquiry committee detected large-scale irregularities in their selection.

Principal Secretary (Home) J.N. Chamber told journalists that the action was based on the findings of the panel in the recruitment of constables conducted by 18 selection boards at different places in Uttar Pradesh. Mr. Chamber said that among the 7,400 dismissed recruits were 1,900 PAC and 1,200 Police Radio Headquarters constables, who were undergoing training after the selection.

The IPS officers suspended were B.K. Bhalla ADG, ATC, Sitapur; A.D. Misra, IG, Inter-State Border Force, Mirzapur; K.K. Saxena, IG, PAC, Lucknow; Malkhan Singh Yadav, IG, Inter-State Border Force, Varanasi; Prabhat Kumar, DIG, PAC, Meerut; G.K. Goswami, Commandant, 11 PAC Battalion, Sitapur; and V.K. Agrawal, DIG, Economic Offences Wing.

Pulled up by panel

Mr. Chamber said seven other IPS officers who were suspended earlier were once again pulled up by the inquiry committee as they were the chairmen of the selection boards. These officers were R.N. Yadav, Daljit Singh Chaudhary, Ramendra Vikram Singh, Shailendra Pratap Singh, Chhavinath Singh, B.B. Bakshi and Akhilesh Mehrotra. He said cases would be filed against the suspended officers and they would also face departmental inquiry.

Junior-level police officers who were members of the 18 recruitment boards were also hauled up by the probe panel. The official said departmental action would be initiated against them.

During the Mulayam regime, police recruitments were conducted by 55 selection boards, which were headed by IPS officers. The probe panel had submitted its report on the selections made by 43 boards.
