High Court ruling-another setback to Shanker Bidari

12:03 PM, Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Shankar-BidariBangalore : The efforts being made by Shankar Bidari to  occupy the DG-IGP Post, have received a setback once again with the State High Court on Monday  reiterating that he was not eligible to occupy the post.

The Divisional Bench comprising Justice N Kumar and Justice HS Kempanna has also ruled that the Union Public Services Commission  order appointing him as DGP was defective.

It may be recalled here that  the same bench had directed Bidari to step down from his post in March last. Bidari however had challenged the order in the Supreme Court which had quashed  the High Court order and had ordered for a re-investigation. Now the court has once again ruled against Bidari.

Earlier, Bidari had submitted before the Supreme Court that the Karnataka High Court had issued an order against him though the National Human Rights Commission and the Justice Sadashiva Commission in their report had not mentioned anything personal about him,  regarding his tenure as  the Commandant of the Special Task Force during the Anti-Veerappan operation. The Supreme Court taking cognizance of this had asked the High Court to reinvestigate.

The High Court now in its ruling has said the appointment of   Bidari as the DGP was defective as the report has not mentioned any good opinion about Bidari who headed a Special Task Force.
