SAT served a show-cause notice to the Odisha government on the recent suspension of Deba Prasad Dash.

Bhubaneswar:2/06/18; The State Administrative Tribunal  on the recent suspension of senior Odisha Administrative Service (OAS) officer Deba Prasad Dash.

The tribunal also sought the disciplinary file which resulted in the suspension of Dash on Monday as a part of the departmental disciplinary action.

During the period of suspension, Dash has been asked by the General Administration (GA) department to stay in his headquarters, Cuttack. The directive further stated that Dash cannot leave the headquarters without the permission of Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC) Central.

The next hearing of the case has been posted to the last week of June, said Das’s counsel Pitambar Acharya.
