HC adjourns Bidari case to June 3

The petition was filed by Shankar Bidari, who is now the Additional Director General of Police, Railways, challenging the legality of the CAT order directing only a certain category of officers to be recommended by UPSC for empanelment for the post of Director General of Police.

Earlier, the government and UPSC sought time to file their objections while the petitioner sought time to file his rejoinder.

The CAT on an application, filed by DG Home Guards and Fireforce D V Guruprasad, had passed an order on April 21 this year directing the state government to send a proposal of eligible officers of particular categories for post of DGP.

Questioning the order by which the category under which he (Bidari) comes, has been excluded, Bidari filed a petition two days ago.

A Division Bench, comprising Justice H S Kempanna and Justice K L Manjunath, adjourned the plea to Friday.
