CAT quashes dismissal of police cop

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Jan 22: A Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) comprising Dr Bhagwan Sahai and Rakesh Sagar Jain has quashed the order passed by Senior Superintendent of Police Doda whereby police cop Indraz Ali was dismissed from the service.
While quashing the order, the CAT observed, “no record has been placed by the respondents to show and suggest that any inquiry was conducted into the matter in accordance with the rules governing the field. Not even a murmur has been made to state that any evidence was recorded in the case”.
“The procedure laid down to conduct an enquiry in the Rules does not appear to have been followed at any stage, as a consequence of which, the impugned order of dismissal and the appellate order cannot survive and sustain in the eyes of law”, the CAT said, adding “no charge sheet appears to have been framed against the petitioner. What is the evidence that has formed the base line of the order of the dismissal of the applicant has not come forward. The Rules appear to have been flouted with impurity”.
