PCS(EB) convened a meeting to discuss the issue of suspension of UP cadre IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal on Monday.
News reports suggest that the officer has exhibited extraordinary courage while taking on the sand mafia in her jurisdiction. The officer (originally Punjab Cadre officer) had completed her field training in Punjab and has served as an assistant commissioner (under training) in SAS Nagar.
Her work was appreciated by her colleagues as well as senior officers. It appears that Nagpal is being targeted for not bowing to the illegal demands of the political bosses.
The PCS officers' Association expressed its solidarity with the officer and appealed to other civil services associations and IAS officers Associations to support Nagpal.
