SC scraps writ against govt decision on IGP appointment

2022 Jul 15, 19:51,

The Supreme Court has scrapped the writ petition filed against the government's decision to appoint Dhiraj Pratap Singh as the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Dipak Kumar Karki and Justice Kumar Chudal issued the verdict that decision of the government to appoint Singh as IGP was right.

Additional Inspector General of Police Bishworaj Pokhrel had filed a writ petition at SC against Singh's appointment as IGP, arguing that the government appointed IGP to the person junior to him and demanded his appointment as IGP.

The government appointed Singh as IGP on May 1, 2022.
