However, Sisodia tweeted: “Those, who are spreading news that OSD to Deputy Chief Minister suspended by L-G, it should check facts, none of the officials being named as is working as my OSD”.
Singh,currently posted as ADM (South/East),and SDM (Model Town) Amit Kumar Pamasi have been placed under suspension. Also, ADM (North) K C Surendra has been “recommended to be placed under suspension by the Union Home Ministry”.
The sources said Singh had allegedly passed an illegal order to hand over land acquired in a village for DUSIB to a private individual. Sources in the government said an inquiry was conducted in the matter and the Chief Secretary submitted a report to the Raj Niwas.
“The action has been taken after the report was submitted by the Chief Secretary,” said a senior official.
