Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh government on Thursday rejected representation of State DGP, V. Dinesh Reddy seeking an extension in the post till September 2014, in the backdrop of a pending CBI probe against him on allegations of acquiring disproportionate assets.
The state government informed the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) here of its decision of not extending Reddy in the post as the "government thought it fit for not extending his term in view of the pending CBI enquiry against him."
Accordingly, the Hyderabad bench of CAT disposed of Reddy's petition in which he had earlier sought direction to the Centre and state government to continue him as the DGP (head of police force) for a period of two years from the date of his appointment on September 29, 2012.
The AP Police chief had earlier in August filed an application before CAT contending that his appointment as the DGP was made in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court in the Prakash Singh case, wherein the state government has send a panel of three names of senior-most IPS officers to the UPSC and one among them is selected as per the recommendation of the Commission.
He said the Supreme Court's directions are specific about the appointee to the post of DGP being in office for a minimum period of two years from the date of his appointment, irrespective of the date of superannuation. Reddy is attaining superannuation age by the end of this month.
Based on a complaint filed by senior IPS Officer Umesh Kumar, the Apex Court on September 6 ordered a CBI probe against Dinesh Reddy for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets along with his wife.
It also slammed the state government for not conducting any probe against Reddy when copy of the complaint was forwarded by the Centre. A bench of justices B S Chauhan and S A Bobde directed the CBI to conduct the probe and file a status report within four weeks.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
