PRESENT: Shri Amninder Singh, Advocate for the petitioner.
Notice of motion to the respondents.
On the asking of Court, Shri Sukhdip Singh Brar, Additional Advocate General, Punjab accepts notice on behalf of the respondents.
The grievance made by the petitioner is that although a complaint made by him against respondents No.5 and 6 was being enquired into by respondent No.4, Executive Engineer, Canal Lining Area Division, Patiala but the aforesaid Enquiry Officer in connivance with respondents No.5 and 6 has recorded incorrect proceedings and has reflected that the said complaint made by the petitioner had been withdrawn by him. According to the learned counsel, the petitioner, at no stage, had withdrawn the said complaint and as such the Enquiry Officer was required to enquire into the said complaint.
Without commenting upon the various pleas raised by the petitioner in the present petition, we dispose of the present petition with a direction to the Chief Engineer(Vigilance), Canal and Drainage Department, Punjab, respondent No.2 to look into the grievance made by the petitioner.
For this purpose, the petitioner shall be required to file a detailed and comprehensive representation before the Chief Engineer (Vigilance), Punjab, respondent No.2 within a period of four weeks from the date a certified copy of this order is received, by appending all the relevant documents. On receipt of the aforesaid representation, respondent No.2 shall look into the matter and take up such appropriate proceedings, as may be required within a period of three months thereafter.
Before parting with this order, we make it clear that the present directions issued by this Court shall not be considered to mean any expression of opinion on the merits of the case.
A copy of the order be given dasti on payment of usual charges.
