Patna, Dec 6: Bihar Director General-cum-Civil Defence Commissioner Manoj Nath today demanded an impartial probe into the corruption charges and other allegations levelled against IPS officers through a pseudonymous petition, telecast recently by a private channel.
"Such practices will have a severe detrimental effect on the government's efforts to usher in good governance," Mr Nath a senior IPS officer said in a letter to the Chief Secretary RJM Pillai.
Copy of the letter was also sent to the Principal Home Secretary and Principal secretary to the chief minister, drawing their attention towards a news telecast based on an anonymous letter about the allegations against IPS officers in the state.
The allegation ranging from disproportionate wealth and flesh trade had been levelled against Mr Nath himself, DG ranked officer D N Gautam, Director General-cum-managing director of police building construction corporation Anand Shankar among others.
Apart from the impartial probe, Mr Nath also demanded the government to ascertain how such a villification and slander campaign complaint reached a private channel.
He said if stern actions were not taken immediately against such annonymous petitioners, it will definitely have an adverse impact on the 'good governance', in the state.
Earlier, such allegations against IPS officers were received a month ago by the office of the DGP, Chief secretary, CM secretariat and home commissioner. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had already ordered a probe into the issue.
Meanwhile, Anand Shankar already proceeded on long leave.
