Lohar brothers challenge dismissal from post of DSP in MAT

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Apr 17 (UNI) The Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal today dismissed the application filed by three Lohar brothers challenging their dismissal by State government from the posts of Deputy Superintendent of police (DSP).

A Division Bench comprising Vice-chariman D G Vasudevan and member P K Gaikwad, while dismissing the plea held that prima facie it appears that applicant had used fake caste certificates for procurring the post of DSP in the Maharashtra police.

The trio, Manoj, Sunil and Nitin Lohar, were dismissed by the State government in December last year following the Maharashtra Public Service Commission recommendation to terminate their services on grounds of submitting fake certificates at the time of applying for the jobs.

Counsel Nandan Goswami argued before the MAT that the certificates were genuine and State government had no right to challenge the validity. He said only the Bombay High Court, could check its validity and initiate action.

While opposing the plea, counsel P M Pradhan contended that the MPSC was not challenging the validity of the certificate but the genuineness of the certificate.

The three, were granted anticipatory bail after offences were registered against them by the Anti-Corruption Bureau,in September and December last year.
