C.P. No. 362 Bijendra Singh v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 13221 of 2006  RD-AH 5061 (3 March 2006)
HON. ARUN TANDON, J.
Petitioner is a Constable, under suspension pending enquiry. Under orders of the Senior Superintendent of Police, Etah dated 13.1.2006 he has been transferred from Etah to Mainpuri.
In the opinion of the Court transfer of a suspended employee serves no purpose, it would only result in wastage of public exchequer inasmuch as every time petitioner is required to appear in the departmental enquiry, he would be paid traveling allowance.
In such circumstances the order of transfer dated 30.1.2006 passed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Agra Region, Agra cannot be legally sustained and is hereby quashed. However, in case the petitioner is restored back in service at any point of time, it shall be open to the authorities to pass a fresh order of transfer.
Writ petition is allowed.
