Supreme Court dismisses plea on Durga Shakti


Durga-Shakti-NagpalThe Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking contempt of court proceedings against the Uttar Pradesh government for suspending IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal.

Nagpal was suspended last month ostensibly for breaking down a wall of a mosque, an action the state government said could have triggered communal tension. She was placed under suspension July 27 and issued a charge sheet Aug 4.
