CM moved Supreme for Dinesh

The Andhra Pradesh Government headed by Kiran Kumar Reddy today filed a Special Leave Petition in Supreme Court challenging the High Court orders upholding the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) decision to set aside the appointment of Director General of Police V. Dinesh Reddy as the Head of Police Force (HoPF). In the Special Leave Petition, the State Government appealed the apex court to quash High Court orders by on the grounds that Dinesh Reddy was appointed on post based on his tenure.

It may be recalled that a few days back, State High Court has set aside Dinesh Reddy’s appointment and directed the government to adhere to CAT order and send a new list of senior most IPS officers to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) within two weeks facilitating the appointment of new DGP. The Court also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on the government for filing a petition.
