State Govt suspends IAS Srilakshmi
Published on Dec 1, 2011 4:40 pm IST


Following the arrest of senior IAS officer Y Srilakshmi by the Central Bureau of Investigation for her alleged role in the Obulapuram Mining Corporation’s illegal mining case, the state government on Thursday issued orders suspending her from the services.

The orders were issued after the CBI formally informed State’s Chief Secretary Pankaj Dwivedi in written format about Srilakshmi’s arrest for her alleged role in the illegal mining scam. As per the law, the government has to suspend an employee within 48 hours after his arrest. However, due to the delay in CBI’s letter, the government initiated the action on Thursday.

Earlier on Tuesday, the CBI officials had informed the State Government about her arrest through a note containing the reasons that led to her arrest.

After the arrest, the CBI Special Court has remanded Srilakshmi to three days CBI custody. The court is yet to take a decision on her petitions seeking bail and special category status in prison. (INN)
