A two-judge panel of Telangana High Court comprising Chief Justice Raghavendra Chauhan and Justice T Vinod Kumar on Wednesday refused to interfere with an order placing a Village Revenue Officer under suspension a year before his scheduled retirement.

The panel was hearing a writ appeal filed by P Narasimha Chary questioning an order of a single judge who earlier upheld the order of suspension. The petitioner had questioned his suspension as being the incident was as far back as in 2003 to 2006, while he was working as Village Revenue Officer in Bommakal Village.

A suspension after 13 years he said was unwarranted. A single judge dismissed the writ petition on the ground that the remedy of appeal is available to the petitioner directing him to avail the remedy. The petitioner contended that he was going to retire in one year.

The panel took note of the fact that already a criminal complaint was registered against him, the appellant was facing criminal trial, respondents are justified in issuing the orders of suspension, the panel reasoned.
