Himachal on court orders shifts tainted officers to non sensitive posts

Shimla: the Himachal Pradesh High Court today disposed of a petition that had asked for transferring identified officers of doubtful integrity from sensitive to non-sensitive posts after the government let the judges know that the courts orders had been implemented.

Mr Anup Rattan, Additional Advocate General let the division bench of Acting Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir and Justice Kuldip Singh know that all directions issued by the court had been complied with.

“In the given circumstances, the petition is disposed,” Justice Mir ordered.

Earlier, when the court at its hearing on 6th December, 2013 had asked for the status report, the government on 27 December had responded that of the 43 officers with doubtful integrity, 20 had been shifted and the remaining were in the process of being transferred to non-sensitive posts.

At one point the government had even attempted to resist the courts powers in transfer matters by stating in court it was becoming difficult to find suitable posts for posting all the officers on list of doubtful integrity from sensitive to non sensitive posts.
