It doesn’t happen often that a state administration officer takes on senior IAS officers, inclu-ding the state chief secretary. But a Karnataka Administrative Service (KAS) officer has lodged a complaint with the state Human Rights Commission against the Chief Secretary and nine other IAS officers, apparently the first time ever in the state.

Sources say that K. Mathai, an administrative officer in the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR) has alleged “continuous human rights violations” against him by his superiors for exposing a land scam. Mathai, it is said, has been transferred 27 times in 10 years by the state government.

 

In his complaint to the commission, Mr Mathai has mentioned CS T.M. Vijaya Bhaskar and thers for their alleged role in violating his human rights. Sources say that Mr Mathai has highlighted the grievances of many KAS officers who allege harassment by their sen-iors. The proceedings in his complaint to the rights panel will, no doubt, be followed by bureaucrats in Karnataka.
