    There is provision in the Discipline and Appeal Rules to dismiss an employee without a DAR Inquiry in such cases. Many of us have taken recourse to this provision now and then.Mohanty should be immediately dismissed under DAR. What is the Government waiting for. It was the job of the Chief Secretary to make Vasundhara aware of this provision. If he hasn't then he has failed miserably.
