Packed off to Aligarh, PCS officer resumes dharna

PCS officer Rinku Singh Rahi, who was staging a dharna in Lucknow on Monday, was forcibly sent to his native place in Aligarh district by the police. He has now resumed his dharna in Aligarh, where he is posted. Rahi alleged that police had attempted to get him admitted to the psychiatric department of CSMU.

A 2004-batch officer, Rahi, who survived a murderous attack in Muzaffarnagar in 2009, began his fast-unto-death opposite the Vidhan Sabha on Monday demanding reply to his RTI application seeking details of money not used by the social welfare department of Muzaffarnagar district in 2008-09. Rahi said he could expose a huge embezzlement of funds in the department with the help of the reply to his RTI application.

Dr P K Dalal, head of the psychiatric department, said doctors on duty examined Rahi and the hospital superintendent was informed about it. “Rahi and his relatives refused to give consent for hospitalisation and therefore he was allowed to go,” Dalal said.Packed off to Aligarh, PCS officer resumes dharna, 2.5 out of 5 based on 2 ratings
