In May, Verma, a 1986-batch IPS officer of the Gujarat cadre, had been served a show-cause notice by NEEPCO for alleged misconduct and unauthorised absence from duty. Sources had then said that the Home Ministry, the cadre-coantrolling authority for IPS officers, had been informed of the notice issued by NEEPCO, which comes under the Power Ministry. Verma was asked to explain the absence from duty and travelling without permission, the sources had said.
