The Bombay High Court has reserved the order on the appointment of Director General of Police.

The state government and Director General of Police Anami Narayan Roy had challenged the order of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), setting aside the latter’s appointment as DGP.

The CAT, on October 8 last year, had set aside Roy’s appointment based on a petition by Suprakash Chakravarty — the then Director General (DG), Commandant General Home Guard and Director, Civil Defence and present DG of Anti-Corruption Bureau — alleging that there were three senior DGs, including him, who could be appointed as DGP.

As per the Supreme Court judgment, the DGP has to be selected from among the three senior-most DGs in the state. Roy’s name was fourth on the list but he was appointed DGP last March. The other senior DGs are S.S. Virk (Housing) and J.D. Virkar (home secretary).

Chakravarty is due for retirement on June 30. Virk and Virkar are due for retirement on July 31 and August 31 respectively. Roy has the longest tenure till May 30, 2010.
