Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Lokayukta NK Mehrotra has found former IAS officer Kapil Dev and the Managing Director of Medical Education Saudan Singh guilty in a case related to the non-payment of a contract basis teacher in the SN Medical College. Following which, the Lokayukta has recommended the state government to take the suitable action against them.

The Lokayukta found them guilty in acting in a partial way and superseding the powers vested in their hands.

The Lokayukta recommendations were sent to the state government, after it heard the matter on the complaint of AK Maheshwari whose appointment on contract basis as Assistant Professor in a medical college was quashed by Kapil Dev. 

Just before taking a VRS himself, Dev passed the order against Maheshwari’s appointment. Later, the UP government named Dev as Chairman of Financial Resources Development Board for UP Nagar Palika.

The Lokayukta observed the Principal Secretary (Medical Education) went beyond his limit of powers and dismissed Maheshwari which was an act of injustice to the complainant.
