New Delhi, Mar 30: The Centre has suspended two senior officers of the Delhi government for alleged dereliction of duty during the coronavirus lockdown. The Centre has also initiated disciplinary proceedings against the two other officers.

A Home Ministry source tells OneIndia that the action was taken due to the exodus of migrant workers in Delhi over the past few days. The suspended bureaucrats are Additional Chief Secretary (Transport), Renu Sharma and Principal Secretary (Finance) Rajeev Verma. Meanwhile disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Satyagopal and the SDM of Seelampur.
