slapped on the suspension of IAS officer Srikanta Prusty till
Member (Administration) of the bench C R Mohapatra
adjourned the hearing of the case yesterday and fixed the next
date for hearing and final order on the interim orders passed
on July 16.

of the government order of suspension of the IAS officer who
is booked by State Vigilance director in a criminal case for
his alleged involvement in getting pecuniary benefits from
multi-crore linkage coal scam.
Meanwhile, the state government has filed an
application before the bench seeking to vacate the stay order
which, however, has been put off for hearing on the next date.
