Revenue officials to continue agitation against higher-ups


Revenue officials to continue agitation against higher-ups

Tribune News Service
Ropar, September 13

The Punjab Revenue Officers’ Association has decided to continue the boycott of magisterial and protocol duties related to the law and order till their demands are met.

The revenue officials are up in arms against Ropar SSP Swapan Sharma ever since he wrote to the Revenue Principal Secretary against Morinda tehsildar Amandeep Singh Chawala for allegedly being absent from his duty during a brawl. Following the complaint, an inquiry was initiated against Chawala. The association has demanded closure of the inquiry and transfer of the SSP.

On September 2, a mob tried to lynch two women at Barmana village near Morinda and SSP Sharma reached the spot with heavy police force. Ropar DC Sumeet Jarangal designated tehsildar Chawala as the duty magistrate but he did not reach the spot and instead sent his junior.

Next day, the SSP filed a complaint against the tehsildar. Agitated, the revenue officials demanded action against him alleging that he exceeded his mandate by writing directly to the higher authorities.

The SSP has denied the allegations and said the tehsildar didn’t reach the spot. Later, he was asked to reach the Ropar city police station to meet the two victim women. There was no question of his confinement, he said.
