Criminal cases against government officers
- It is, therefore, requested that the status of such Criminal/Private cases, need to be closely monitored by obtaining details of the case from officials concerned from time to time. Further, it may be made clear to all the officials that it shall be the duty of the Govt. servant who may be convicted in a Criminal Court to inform his official superiors of the fact of his conviction and the circumstances connected therewith, as soon as it is possible for him/her to do so. Failure on the part of any Govt. servant so to inform his official superiors will be regarded as suppression of material information and will render him liable to disciplinary action on this ground alone, apart from the penalty called for on the basis of offense on which his conviction was based.
- With regard to monitoring of such cases, it is further requested that in case, the Official concerned transferred to some other Organization, the case details may also be intimated to the controlling Office (new office of posting) with a request to watch the further progress of such cases.
- Further, as a one-time measure, details of such Criminal cases may be forwarded to HQrs Office for updation of our database. Thereafter, only fresh cases, if any, to be reported for our reference & record.
