Baran’s former collector IAS Inder Singh Rao (IAS Inder Singh Rao), arrested by the Anti-Corruption Bureau in the Bribery case, has not been granted bail. Today, the High Court dismissed his bail plea.
When Rao was a baran collector, his PA took a bribe of Rs 1.40 lakh in his name. This amount of bribe was taken in the name of giving NOC to a petrol pump. When the role of Rao in this case was suspected, the Anti-Corruption Bureau arrested him. During the hearing, State Advocate Sher Singh Mahala protested against the grant of bail to Rao.
Rao’s suspension period was extended only in the last days
The state government had extended the suspension period of IAS Inder Inder Rao Rao for 120 days in the case of taking bribe. Rao was first suspended by the state government on 4 January. But later when orders for his suspension were issued, he was considered suspended from 23 December. After that, in mid-February, in a meeting chaired by Chief Secretary Niranjan Arya, his suspension period was further extended for 120 days.This is the rule regarding suspension
According to the All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Amendment Rules-2015, the State Government has to take the consent of the Civil Services Board or Central Review Committee for continuation of the suspension for one week continuously. This committee is headed by the Secretary of the concerned Ministry (Personnel for IAS, Home for IPS and Forest for IFS). In the state, it is commanded by the Chief Secretary.
