Proceedings in case against APCO MD stayed

Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Justice Raja Elango of the High Court on Tuesday stayed the proceedings in a case filed against V. D. Rajagopal , Managing Director of APCO, against whom allegations were made to the effect that he humiliated P. Shankar Rao, Minister of Textiles in the name of his caste.

The Station House Officer, Saifabad, registered a case against Mr. Rajagopal under SC, ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. The police were relying upon the complaint lodged by the Officer on Special Duty of the Minister's Peshi. The officer contended that Rajagopal invoked the caste of Shankar Rao and talked in a humiliating way to the Minister. Rajagopal approached the High Court and filed a petition seeking quashing of the case. He contended that the aggrieved party had not filed the case and such a complaint could not be booked against him.

Petition dismissed

A Division Bench of the High Court comprising Justice Ghulam Mohammad and Justice K.G. Shankar on Tuesday dismissed the writ petition filed by K. Ratnaprabha, senior IAS officer, who sought a direction to continue in the AP State cadre.

She had filed a petition in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) Hyderabad complaining that she is not being allowed to stay back in the State.

She had raised various grounds. When that petition was dismissed by CAT she filed the current writ petition.

She averred that though there were favourable recommendations from the governments of Karnataka and AP, the Central government refused to extend permission to stay back here.

She pointed out that as many as 17 similarly placed persons are being continued. The bench refused the relief sought for and dismissed the case.
