Delhi HC to Centre: Post Rajnish Rai in police

Delhi high court has directed the Centre to give IPS officer Rajnish Rai a posting as an IG in a central police organization within three weeks.

On Monday, a bench of Justices Kailash Gambhir and I C Mehta gave the Centre three weeks to give Rai a posting, after the government communicated that it would appoint him in the police. Earlier, on two occasions, the Centre had not replied to the court's insistence to give a clarification, said Rai's counsel I H Syed.

Last year, Rai was transferred and posted as chief vigilance officer in Uranium Corporation of India Ltd in Jaduguda, Jharkhand, but he moved the Central Administrative Tribunal against his appointment. The CAT agreed with Rai but did not order his transfer to a police organization.

Rai then moved Delhi HC stating he had sought deputation in a central police organization and not a central PSU. The HC kept further hearing of the case on March 20.
