Bijendra Pratap Singh v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 19858 of 2007  RD-AH 7734 (26 April 2007)
Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner and Sri S. N. Singh appearing for the respondents.
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for quashing the order dated 6.11.2006 by which the petitioner was placed under suspension. The petitioner has also prayed for quashing the charge sheet dated 18.1.2007 and 28.3.2007. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the charges on which the petitioner was suspended are entirely vague charges. He further submitted that the charge sheet also contained general and vague charges on which no enquiry can proceed. He further contends that although the charge sheet was served on 18.1.2007 but enquiry has not proceeded.
I have considered the submissions and perused the record.
The suspension order refers to the allegations on which the petitioner has been placed under suspension . The allegations which are made in the suspension order , cannot be said either general or vague. I do not find any error in the order suspending the petitioner. The charge sheet also refers the material on which charges were framed. No ground is made out for quashing the charge sheet also. However, the submission of the petitioner that the enquiry has not yet proceeded although charge sheet was served on 18.1.2007 needs consideration. The petitioner having been suspended on 6.11.2006 and the charge sheet having been served, ends of justice be served in disposing of the writ petition and directing the Disciplinary authority to conclude the enquiry expeditiously preferably within a period of six months . In case the enquiry is not so completed despite the petitioner's participation the respondents shall consider the prayer of the petitioner for revocation of the suspension in accordance with law. Learned counsel for the petitioner lastly contended that although the Enquiry Officer has written to the Branch Manager to give copy or show all relevant documents which has not yet been done. The respondents may supply copy of documents to the petitioner or permit him inspection of the records.
With the above observations the writ petition is disposed of.
