Durga Shakti's suspension revoked

Lucknow, Sep 22 (IANS) The suspension of IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal has been revoked by the Uttar Pradesh government, an official statement issued here Sunday said.

The 2010 batch Indian Administrative Service officer was suspended for allegedly ordering the razing of the wall of a mosque in Gautam Budh Nagar.

Nagpal was suspended as sub-divisional magistrate July 27, attached with the state revenue board and served a charge sheet Aug 4.

The state government in the charge sheet had accused her of taking a hasty administrative decision that lacked foresight and imperilled communal harmony in the region.

In her reply, Nagpal had said that the boundary wall of the under-construction mosque at Kadalpur village in Gautam Budh Nagar was being built on Gram Sabha land and not on private land.

On Saturday, she and her bureaucrat husband Abhishek Singh met Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
