New Delhi: A sacked DIG of the CRPF, who was found guilty of sending sexually explicit contents to a woman on her mobile phone, has failed to get any relief from the Delhi high court, which said a senior public servant should maintain a higher standard of “rectitude.”

The deputy inspector general (DIG) of the paramilitary force was removed from service in July after it was proved in a departmental inquiry that his act had tarnished the image of the organisation and that he had failed to maintain an absolute devotion to his duty.

 

A bench of justices S Muralidhar and Sanjeev Narula dismissed the petition of Sandeep Yadav, also an awardee of the President’s Police Medal for meritorious service in 2010, in which he had challenged the penalty awarded to him by the disciplinary authority — the director general — removing him from service.

A complaint was filed against the officer by the woman’s husband before the authorities concerned, in which it was alleged that he had been sending nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit materials from his mobile phone to the woman’s mobile phone.

It was also alleged that between May 6 and June 1, 2014, he had made 395 calls to the woman from his mobile phone, mostly during office hours, and had also indulged in immoral conversations with her.

 

Yadav had contended before the investigating officer (IO) that government servants were very much entitled to a private life and what he did in his private time (after office or duty hours) was his business and the government had no control over it.

The IO, in his report, had stated that Yadav was found to have made numerous calls to the woman “during normal office hours.”

The decision to remove him from service was taken after the disciplinary authority consulted the UPSC.
