Odisha government drops vigilance case against ex-DGP Prakash Mishra

FOUR MONTHS after he retired, Odisha government has finally decided to drop departmental proceedings against 1977-batch IPS officer Prakash Mishra over allegations that he had regularised ad hoc services of eight peons and a watchman of a police organisation without approval of its Board of Directors.

The state home department said that it was closing the disciplinary case against Mishra, now adviser to Uttarakhand Governor K K Paul after he retired as director-general of CRPF on February 29.

The order comes four months after the principal bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), New Delhi, quashed the state’s April 2015 order, which said that during his tenure as CMD of Odisha State Police Warehousing Corporation, Mishra had in 2009 regularised services of ad hoc employees without the Board’s approval.
