THE STATE government has rejected former Chief Secretary Vijay Singh's request for one month time to reply to the notice served on him in connection with the ICD scam. However, the government has acceded his demand to provide relevant documents pertaining to the case.

In a fresh letter, the State Government told Vijay Singh, Secretary, Indian Medicine System in the Centre, to furnish reply in ten days. The documents related with the case that led to Singh's unceremonious ouster last month as Chief Secretary, along with the fresh letter of State Government have already been sent to him.

The Government had issued notice to the 1970 batch IAS officer on February 20 asking him to explain the reasons as to why he had suppressed information about pending FIR against SR Mohanty while writing letters to Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT).

The Government also considered the act of former Chief Secretary as administrative failure because he had not taken permission from the Chief Minister before sending the affidavit regarding clean chit to SR Mohanty in the ICS case to the High Court.
