Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh government has reinstated IAS officer Gyaneshwar B Patil, who was suspended for allegedly committing "unnatural sex" with his subordinate in his office nearly two months ago.

The state government yesterday issued an order for reinstatement of Patil as the charges levelled against him by Sikandarabad Village Panchayat secretary Satish Choukse were not substantiated in the probe conducted by the government, however, no decision has been taken so far against the new posting of the 2003 batch IAS officer, officials said here today.

On the instructions of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan the government had suspended Patil on June 19 as he was allegedly found in suspicious circumstances with Choukse at the Zila Panchayat Office here on the night of June 18 and local TV channels showed half-naked images of the two employees, clicked in the bathroom.

Later, Choukse alleged that Patil, the then Chief Executive Officer of Zila Panchayat, had forced him to commit unnatural sex.

Expressing happiness, Patil said he had been framed by some due to vested interests and his reinstatement speaks about his innocence.
