Suspended cop wins case against dept, reinstated

Submitted by alvin on Wed, 2016-07-13 20:07 Bengaluru: A police constable, who was suspended after he staged a protest against DAR officers in Mandya, has won his case back. The Karnataka Administrative Tribunal which heard K,T Ramakrishna’s plea, ruled in his favour.  The Court has ruled that Ramakrishna be reinstated into the service within 20 days. Further, the court ruled that Ramakrishna's salary and other service benefits from the day he was suspended be restored to him.The court in its order has lambasted Superintendent of Police Sudhir Kumar Reddy for his decision to suspend Ramakrishna.The constable had protested against harassment by his superiors when the police personnel in the state had decided to go on en masse leave last month. While the protest was later withdrawn, Ramakrishna went ahead with his protest and courted arrest. The town police detained him in prison for the night and he was suspended later. Ramakrishna approached the tribunal, challenging his suspension.
