The  legal battle of two IPS officer of Assam Police came in public domain.  Yesterday Additional Director General of Police (Communication), Assam, R Chandanathan has alleged  ” that a section of senior police officers trying  to tarnish his public image”  and today another IPS officer Anurag Agarwala issued a press release stating that ” I am forced to state the following facts in public domain due to  false, concocted and misleading press statement given by one of my senior colleague”.

Agarwala mentioned in his press release that ” I have filed a complaint against Mr Chandranathan  in  the Judicial Court, Silchar who  directed the Silchar Police Station to register a criminal case against Mr Chandranathan under various sections of IPC.  Over the years, Mr Chandranathan  has misused his official position and committed many illegalities,  suppression of correct facts etc.  and submitted false reports against me  with sole motive  to hamper my  career prospects. He opened vigilance enquiry against me on false pretext and concocted facts which  could not withstand the judicial scrutiny. Vide judgement and order dated 01-04-2015 in W.P ( C)  2953/2013,   the  Hon’ble Gauhati High Court not only quashed the vigilance enquiry  conducted by him but also made adverse observations like  that “ the said enquiry was malafide  and the enquiry report  was blatantly contrary to the actual facts”.

It was also mentioned in the press release that ” Further , again to harass me Mr Chandranathan  was instrumental  in registration of Panbazar Police Station Case No.77/2015 on the same subject matter which was quashed by the Hon’ble Gauhati High Court vide judgement and order  in  W.P (C)  2953/13. The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption department  also suppressed registration of Panbazar Police Station Case No. 77/15 from the Hon’ble High Court in the  Affidavit filed by them in  March, 2015 just prior to  the final outcome of the W.P (C) 2953/13. Again, self moved to the Hon’ble High Court  in form of criminal petition 595/2915 who quashed the Panbazar Police Station Case No.77/15 vide judgement and order dated 20-11-2015. and again the Hon’ble High Court made adverse  observations that “ this said   case is   registered on the same subject matter  which has already been quashed in W.P(C)  2953/13 and continuance  of this case  can not serve any other purpose except  undue harassment of the officer and abuse of process of Court “.

Mr Agarwala mentioned in his press release that ”   I stand  with my  complaint petitions against Shri Chandranathan. Each and every word of my complaints  against Shri Chandranathan  is true and based on the above mentioned judgements  of  the Hon’ble  High Court and other documentary evidences “
