RPF leader sends legal notice to CBI director

RPF leader sends legal notice to CBI director

The fight between Railway Police Force (RPF) association leader US Jha and CBI Director Ranjit Sinha took another bitter turn on Monday when the former sent a legal notice of defamation to the latter.

The notice has been sent over the circulation and publishing of allegedly “defamatory and derogatory” news about illegal occupation of railways’ accommodations. The notice, demanding Rs 51 lakh as compensation, asserts that Jha is not occupying these accommodations illegally and has been provided them by railways after the due process of allotment has been followed.

Jha has said that two accommodations, one for the office of the All India RPF Association and another for the residence of  the Secretary General of the association, have been allotted legally. 

The notice also says that other unions have also been given such residences to run their offices. In his notice, Jha has claimed that his complaints against Sinha while he was posted as Director General of RPF in railways has prompted the CBI Director to fulfil a “personal grudge, vendetta and vengeance”. He has accused Sinha of “misusing and abusing the public post of CBI director.
