Jammu and Kashmir government is on a reinstatement spree of tainted KAS officers who were suspended for alleged irregularities.

After the General Administration Department (GAD) reinstated KAS officer Sonu Pargal who was booked by Anti Corruption Bureau in 2018, J&K government on Friday reinstated Dr Bharat Bhushan against whom an inquiry was pending.

A government order clearly mentions that “period of his suspension shall be decided on conclusion of the case”.

A government order at the time of his suspension read “Pending enquiry into his conduct, Dr. Bharat Bhushan, KAS, Managing Director, J&K SC, ST and OBC Development Corporation, is hereby placed under suspension, with immediate effect in terms of Rule 31 of Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1956,”.
