New Delhi, June 30 (ANI): The Union Home Ministry on Wednesday decided to withhold former Haryana Director General of Police (DGP) SPS Rathore's pension in full on a permanent basis.

Rathore is serving jail terms after being convicted in the Ruchika Girhotra molestation case.

He belonged to 1965 batch of the Indian Police Service.

In a statement, the Home Ministry said, the decision was taken after the Chandigarh Chief Judicial Magistrate convicted Rathore.

In March, the Home Ministry stripped Rathore of the police medal awarded to him.

The Home Ministry had also written to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and the Ministry of Personnel, seeking their views on reducing and discontinuation of the pension and other post-retirement benefits being given to Rathore. (ANI)
