IPS officer accused of sexual harassment sacked
Natrajan remained suspended since August 2005 when a news channel showed him in a compromising position with a tribal woman.
Ranchi: Indian Police Service (IPS) officer PS Natarajan, suspended from service on charges of sexually exploiting a tribal woman, has been dismissed from service, a senior Jharkhand official said on Saturday.
"Natarajan has been dismissed," state Home Secretary JB Tubid told.
Natrajan, then inspector general of police of Ranchi, remained suspended since August 2005 when a television news channel showed him in a compromising position with a tribal woman, Sushma Badaik.
In her complaint, Badaik said she was sexually exploited by Natarajan who assured her justice against another IPS official. After his suspension, Natarajan was sent to jail. He is at present on bail and facing a case in a Ranchi court.
Following the scandal, the Jharkhand government had initiated the process for Natarajan's dismissal. The state had recommended to the central government and the Union Public Service Commission that Natarajan be sacked and its recommendation was accepted.
