PIL in Allahabad High Court on appointment of DGP UP

Prayagraj, August 05: A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Allahabad High Court challenging the legality of appointing senior IPS officer Mukul Goel as the Director General of Police (DGP) of the Uttar Pradesh.

In the PIL filed by Avinash Prakash Pathak, it has been said that the present Director General of Police Mukul Goyal was accused of massive corruption in Uttar Pradesh Police Recruitment in the year 2005 and an indictment was also registered against him in the Metropolitan Police Station of Lucknow.

“In the year 2007, by the order of the then state government, the then DGP Vikram Singh handed over the investigation of the case to the Anti-Corruption Institute,” says in PIL.

The petitioner had sent the complaint of the said matter to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in the year 2017, on which on February 23 2018, Mukesh Sahni, IPS Section Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs, wrote a letter to the then Principal Secretary Home of Uttar Pradesh to investigate the said corruption and directed it. He said that after investigating the said corruption, the complainant should inform Avinash Pathak about the action taken, as well as inform the Ministry of Home Affairs. But despite constant correspondence, no action has been taken by the Principal Secretary Home of Uttar Pradesh and Mukul Goel, who was involved in corruption by the present Chief Minister, was appointed as the Director General of Police of Uttar Pradesh which is illegal. For this reason, the petitioner was compelled to file a PIL
