After weeks of dilly-dallying, Uttar Pradesh Government has reinstated suspended IPS official Amitabh Thakur.
An order was issued by principal secretary (Home) Debashish Pandey, which informed that Thakur was being reinstated with full salary with effect from October 11, 2015.
He was suspended after he lodged an FIR against Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, claiming a telephonic threat by him.
The order states that the central government had quashed Thakur's suspension through its March 31, 2016 order which was again reiterated by Lucknow bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal on April 25, 2016.
Centre had again given same directions to the Uttar Pradesh government through its order on April 26, 2016 and in compliance of all the above orders, he is being reinstated with effect from October 11, 2015 with full salary.
The order also says the order for his posting shall be issued separately.
