    In his complaint, Shankar Devegowda alleged that the Supreme Court had directed not to implement 'Karnataka Determination of Seniority of Government Servants Promoted on the Basis of Reservation Act 2002' in February 2017. As result of this decision, 3,799 government servants in 45 departments would have been demoted. However, the Chief Secretary pressurised secretaries of various departments not to follow the apex court's order.

    K Ratnaprabha's service had been extended by former CM Siddaramaiah for three months just before the assembly elections. Prabha, a 1981 batch IAS officer was appointed chief secretary on November 28, 2017, and her term was scheduled to end on March 31. She is set to complete her extended tenure on June 30.

    More details awaited.
