Indisciplined Uttar Pradesh IPS escape government action
Lucknow: Following the lines of two senior IPS officers in Uttar Pradesh, another 2007 batch officer Nitin Tiwari, who was transferred to Mathura from Varanasi, has been accused of dereliction of duties.
Tiwari, soon after taking the charge as SSP Mathura, went on leave and even extended it various times.
Nitin's defiance approach of not joining on the post of SSP Mathura has forced the police headquarters to find his replacement.
Earlier, two IPS officers - Dr Pritinder Singh and Dharmendra Singh, who were transferred from Agra and Gautam Buddh Nagar respectively , were granted leave on non-pay status despite taking an uninformed service break for around one and half months.
The 2004 batch IPS officer Pritinder Singh and 2006 batch officer Dharmendra Singh remained absent for over a month and, interestingly, none of the senior police officials were aware about their whereabouts.
It may be mentioned that Pritinder Singh was attached to the DGP office after being transferred from the post of senior superintendent of police (SSP) Agra. He went on an uninformed leave and returned in person only after he was summoned.
Dharmendra Singh, who was attached to police headquarters here after his transfer as SSP Noida, too followed the lines of Pritinder Singh. He too went on a leave for over a month without any official information.

On being grilled after their return, both the senior IPS officers failed to justify their act.
Instead of taking disciplinary action against them, the senior police authorities granted Leave Without Pay (LWOP), while ignoring the rule books.
