Chandigarh: The Haryana government today reinstated senior IPS officer and former IGP Rohtak, Shrikant Jadhav, who along with two DSPs were suspended following allegations of omission and commission in containing the violence during the Jat reservation agitation.
"The Haryana government has reinstated Shrikant Jadhav, IPS, in service with effect from March 26, 2016, that is after 30 days from suspension, subject to the final outcome of the departmental proceedings pending against him," an official release said here.
Jadhav has been posted as IG Police State Crime Records Bureau, Madhuban, with immediate effect on his reinstatement, the release said.
Notably, on February 26, the state government had suspended the senior IPS officer and two DSPs of Rohtak.
On February 21, Jadhav was shifted amid the Jat agitation in the state which claimed many lives.
Rohtak, Jhajjar and Meham, which fall under Rohtak Range, had been the worst-hit areas during the Jat stir.
