Satyaveer Singh Rathi v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 21833 of 2007  RD-AH 8941 (10 May 2007)
Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner .
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for quashing the order dated 16.4.2007 by the petitioner has been suspended in contemplation of disciplinary enquiry. Learned counsel for the petitioner challenging the order contended that the charges on the basis of which the petitioner has been suspended are not made out. Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed reliance on the inspection report of Deputy Director (Pashupalan) dated 7.3.2007. On the basis of the said report he submits that the charges are not made out and the suspension was not justified. I am afraid that this Court at this stage cannot enter into the correctness or otherwise of the charges. Prima facie, the allegations are there in the suspension order on which the enquiry is contemplated. In fact charge sheet dated 20.4.2007 has already been served on the petitioner which has been filed as Annexure-5 to the writ petition . The enquiry proceedings are also going on which enquiry contains four charges. Those grounds on which the petitioner challenged the suspension order are not substantive grounds for interference with the order dated 16.4.2007. However, it is always open for the petitioner to pray for revocation of the suspension order from the authorities bringing into his notice all the relevant facts . Learned counsel for the petitioner lastly contended that the petitioner has grievance with regard to Enquiry Officer. It is open for the petitioner to make an application before the disciplinary authority with regard to change of Enquiry Officer. I do not find any error in the suspension order warranting interference by this Court Under Article 226 of the Constitution.
The writ petition lacks merit and is dismissed.
