Over 80 officers of the Indian Police Services (IPS) batch of 1986 from across the country have decided to appeal to the state government,seeking government job for Ranu Sahay,wife of late Additional Director-General (Police Housing) R K Sahay.

Sahay,who had allegedly attempted suicide,succumbed to burn injuries on Thursday.

The IPS officers are also demanding that Sahay’s family be allowed to continue living in the government flat allotted to him for another eight years — the period for which he would have been in service had he been alive.

Sanjay Pandey,Deputy Inspector General (State Reserve Police),who belongs to the same batch as Sahay,said the decision was taken at Sahay’s condolence meeting on Friday.

Sahay had suffered 55 per cent burn injuries in an alleged suicide bid at his Malabar Hill residence on September 15. The police continue to probe the incident.

“Sahay’s wife,who is a qualified lawyer,she should be given a government job as per her qualification. We will send a formal request to the IPS Association on Monday who will forward it to the Chief Minister. We have also asked the government to consider giving the family a house under the CM’s quota after they move out of the police quarters,” said Pandey.

He added that officers of the batch were collecting funds for the education of Sahay’s two children.
