Delhi Police dismissed an inspector on the request of CBI in connection with Telgi fake stamp paper scam and the investigating agency questioned Director General of Arunachal Pradesh Police Amodh Kanth and other senior Delhi police officials in connection with the scandal.
CBI, after investigating the role of inspector Puran Singh, recommended to the Delhi police his dismissal under Article 311 of the Constitution under which any appointing authority could dismiss the services without assigning any reason, official sources said in New Delhi.
The rarely-used Article was invoked for the first time in the multi-crore fake stamp paper case when General Manager of India Security Press, Nasikh, Ganga Prakash was dismissed.
During its investigation into the role of Singh, CBI questioned senior officials of the Delhi Police including Amodh Kanth, who was the then Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police and some Assistants Police Commissioner for their alleged failure to monitor the activities of Singh who frequently visited various places, including Chennai and Bangalore, to meet scamster Abdul Karim Telgi.
The sources said CBI was also soon going to recommend Regular Departmental Action (RDA) against three ACPs as well.
