Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has
returned the report of the DGP (Anti-Corruption) pertaining to
allegations of corruption in the fire department, levelled by
a senior IPS officer, terming it as "incomplete".

"The government has returned the report submitted to
it by the DGP (Anti-Corruption). It was incomplete," Secretary
(Home) Leena Jahauri told reporters here.

On November five, the state government had ordered an
inquiry into allegations of corruption in the fire department,
levelled by the then DIG, Fire Services, D D Mishra, a 1978
batch IPS officer.

Alleging corruption and discrepancies in purchases in
the fire department, Mishra had said he was being "harassed"
for exposing "scam" and was facing a threat to his life.

He was later admitted to the Psychiatric ward of the
Chattrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University where he was
diagnosed to be suffering from bipolar effective disorder.

Mishra, at present, is on leave.
