CAT notice to Guj govt over IPS Rahul Sharma’s petition

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on Monday sought Gujarat government’s reply on three pleas filed by IPS officer Rahul Sharma challenging the charge sheet served on him by the state home department.

Acting on the pleas, CAT division bench has issued notices to the state home secretary, chief secretary, additional chief secretary and additional director general of police (Armed unit).

Gujarat cadre IPS officer Rahul Sharma has filed three petitions in the CAT alleging harassment by the state government and other superior officers to him stating that as he had submitted various crucial evidences before Justice Retd KG Nanavati and Akshay Mehta commissions probing 2002 riots indicting the government, he is being targeted.

In one of the three petitions, he contended that the state government has issued charge sheet and held back his promotion with malafide intentions.

‘On 6 December last year ahead of 7 December - the day when the promotions were declared – he was charge sheeted for the case of a missing CD, which contains crucial records of 2002 riots,’ he said in the petition.

‘Charges of fake signature were also made by the state government with malafide intentions to stop his promotion,’ he alleged in the petition.
