Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to drop disciplinary proceedings against retired IAS officer Promila Shankar, official sources said on Wednesday.

Shankar was placed under suspension on September 9 last year in the previous Mayawati regime on charges of visiting Sri Lanka without seeking permission.

The officer, who later retired on February 29 this year, had alleged that she was deliberately harassed.

The Centre had quashed her suspension but the state had gone ahead with the disciplinary action against her.

The SP government has now decided to drop the proceedings.
