Social activist Nutan Thakur’s Writ Petition in Allahabad High Court, Lucknow Bench regarding service records case of ex Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh shall be heard tomorrow. The hearing shall be before the Bench of Justice Uma Nath Singh and Justice V K Dixit. In the petition, she has prayed for enquiry into the matter related with non-availability of Date of Birth, Educational Qualification, Technical qualifications, Date of appointment etc of Singh in the official records.
Devendra Kumar Dixit from Lucknow had asked for such service records of Singh like Date of Birth, Educational Qualification, Technical qualifications, Date of appointment etc. The Civil Aviation Department told Dixit through its letter on 17 May 2012 that none of Shashank Shekhar’s service records are available. Personnel Department also could not provide any record. Similarly, a Government Note dated 19 April 1990 said- “Captain Shashank Shekhar Singh has not provided his Bio-data and Character Roll so far. The Secretary may remind him” to which Neera Yadav, then Personnel Secretary wrote on 20 April- “I have personally requested Sri Singh again.”
With no government records about Singh’s Basic data, Thakur had written to the Chief Minister, UP and Chief Secretary asking the matter to be enquired. Since no action has been taken, Thakur has now moved to the High Court.
