The former member-secretary of Delhi Dialogue Commission Ashish Joshi, who was sent back to the telecom ministry in what he called was an abrupt shunting, has now filed a formal complaint with the Parliament Street police station against the secretary to the Chief Minister, Rajendra Kumar, and media advisor to the Delhi government, Nagendra Sharma.
The official had written in his complaint that his reputation stands “besmirched” and “tarnished” because of an email sent by Indu Prakash Singh, a social activist, on April 4. The complaint states that he approached Kumar and Sharma to refute the allegations levelled against him but no action has been taken.
“If an official refutation regarding the email sent by Indu Prakash Singh is not issued by you within 48 hours, I will be constrained to file an FIR against all, as the mail has pictures of Singh meeting the CM and Singh could not have issued the email without the involvement of senior officials and officials in the CM’s office,” reads the complaint.
The complaint states that despite reminders, neither Kumar nor Sharma replied to Joshi. “Hence, Indu Prakash Singh, Rajendra Kumar and Nagendra Sharma have violated Section 120 A of IPC and Section 107,” it reads. When contacted, Sharma refused to comment on the issue, saying he was still waiting for a copy of the complaint.
