    Woman IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal.


    IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal, who was in news last week for clamping down on illegal sand mafia in Greater Noida, has been suspended.

    The reason for the suspension of Nagpal is not known.

    Nagpal had led the seizure of 24 dumpers engaged in illegal quarrying and arresting 15 people last week.

    Re: IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal suspended after clamping down on UP sand mafia

    A woman IAS officer, who had recently taken on the powerful sand mafia in Uttar Pradesh, has been suspended barely six months after she got her first posting in the state.

    Durga Shakti Nagpal, the Sub-Divisional magistrate of Greater Noida, was removed after she ordered the demolition of a mosque being built illegally on government land in Greater Noida on Saturday. The state government justified her suspension, claiming that her order to stop the construction of the mosque during the holy month of Ramzan could have created trouble.

    "To prevent communal tension and avoid dispute in village, sometimes we have to take such decisions," Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said.

    While the government has dubbed it as an "administrative decision", many believe that the move was a result of pressure from the mining mafia.

    Ms Nagpal, a 2009-batch IAS officer, had in the last few weeks cracked down on illegal mining in Greater Noida, seizing nearly 300 trolleys of sand from the Yamuna river bed. She also formed special flying squads to check the menace, rampant along the Yamuna and Hindon rivers in western UP.

    "We have acted against these people, we face implicit threats," Ms Nagpal had said earlier.

    The Opposition immediately attacked the government, alleging that it was trying to shelter the sand mafia.

    "It proves that the government was not liking those officers who are leading drives against the mafia... What mistake has she made?" senior BJP leader Kalraj Mishra said.

    The suspension order has again put under scanner the Akhilesh Yadav government which has been routinely criticised for failing to deliver on his electoral promise of wiping out lawlessness and introducing transparency in the government's functioning. The latest episode has not really helped its case.

    Also if you might check deeply, there is good chance that the activities were done by companies belonging to Sahara group.
    Did you ever wonder what project of Sahara is so successful when most of it projects fail?
    What is the secret of the wealth other than the 8000 cr that was invested by investors who are non-existent?

    SC moved against IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal's suspension

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court was on Tuesday petitioned for a stay of the suspension and consequent action against Gautam Buddh Nagar sub-divisional magistrate Durga Shakti Nagpal by the UP government.

    In his public interest litigation, petitioner Manohar Lal Sharma cited the September 29, 2009 order of the apex court directing all collectors and officers of all states that no unauthorised construction shall be carried out or permitted in the name of temple, church, mosque or gurdwara, etc on public streets, public parks or other public places.

    The UP government had placed Nagpal under suspension July 27 for allegedly ordering the demolition of a wall reportedly belonging to a religious structure.

    Officials like Durga Shakti Nagpal should be saluted, not suspended: Manish Tewari

    New Delhi: Backing Uttar Pradesh IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal for her crackdown on sand mining mafia, Union Minister Manish Tewari today said officials who check illegalities should be saluted and not suspended.

    "I think the bureaucracy works according to the law of the land. Officers like her who deal with aberrations, who check illegalities, should be saluted and not suspended," the Information and Broadcasting Minister told media.

    On alleged illegal mining in Punjab, the Congress MP from Ludhiana said, officers like Ms Nagpal are needed in the state to curb the malpractice.

    "...we wish we had a few officers like Nagpal in Punjab, where a lot of illegal mining is going on," Mr Tewari said.

    On the issue of frequent disruptions in Parliament by the members including from Congress, Mr Tewari said, "If anybody disturbs Parliament, it is extremely unfortunate, irrespective of whichever side he or she may be from."

    "Parliament should be allowed to continue, there are issues on which sensitivities, at times emotions run high, but as political leaders maturity demands that we take that in our stride and we allow supreme legislative institutions to function," he said.
