The legal battle of two IPS officers from the Assam Police Force has fallen into the public domain. Yesterday, Additional Director General of Police (Communications) Assam R Chandanathan alleged “that a section of senior police officials was trying to tarnish their public image” and today another IPS officer, Anurag Agarwala, issued a press release stating that “I am compelled to report the following facts in the public domain due to a false, concocted and misleading press statement given by one of my senior colleagues”.
Agarwala mentioned in his press release that “I have filed a complaint against Mr. Chandranathan in the Silchar Judicial Court which ordered the Silchar Police Station to register a criminal case against Mr. Chandranathan under various sections. of the CPI. Over the years, Mr. Chandranathan abused his official position and committed numerous illegalities, suppressing exact facts, etc. and submitted false reports against me for the sole purpose of hampering my career prospects. He opened a vigilance investigation against me under false pretenses and concocted facts that could not withstand judicial review. Considering the judgment and the order of 01-04-2015 in WP (C) 2953/2013, the High Court of the Honorable Gauhati not only annulled the vigilance investigation carried out by him but also made unfavorable observations such as “the said investigation was in bad faith and the investigation report was manifestly contrary to reality”.
