Court raps Mohanty for violations

AP High Court expressed displeasure at Chief Secretary for violating court orders

Hyderabad: A division bench comprising Justice L. Narasimha Reddy and Justice S.V. Bhatt of the AP High Court on Tuesday expressed displeasure at Chief Secretary Dr P.K. Mohanty for violating court orders.

The Chief Secretary appeared before the bench following its directions in a contempt case by former IAS officer Shafiquzzaman who alleged that the CS had violated the assurance given to the court earlier in respect of creating ex-cadre posts in the rank of Chief Secretary.

The bench said that a high-ranking official could not have acted like this and that it would send a wrong signal. While dispensing the presence of the CS in the case, the bench directed that a detailed counter affidavit be filed within 10 days
