UK HC stays notice issued to ex-MD of SIDCUL
Dehra Dun: The Uttarakhand High Court on Monday
stayed a notice issued by an inquiry commission to Alok Kumar,
former Managing Director of the State Infrastructure and
Industrial Development Corporation of Uttarakhand Limited
in connection with an alleged scam.
Hearing the petition, Justice Tarun Agarwal also asked
the state government to send a rejoinder in the matter, which
is being probed by Arvind Verma, a retired IAS officer.
The Verma commission was set up by the Uttarkhand
government in 2007, to probe alleged irregularities by SIDCUL
in the development works related to industrial estates of
Pantnagar and Sitarganj during the N D Tiwari government.
Kumar, who is teaching at the Lal Bahadur Shastri
Academy, Mussoorie, had challenged the notice on the ground
that the Verma commission had not given the mandatory
evidences related to the alleged scandals while sending the
notice, his counsel V K Kohli said.
