Lt Governor Najeeb Jung on Monday suspended Navelendra Kumar Singh, former OSD to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and another official for allegedly handing over land meant for DUSIB to a private party.
Singh, currently posted as ADM (South/East), and SDM (Model Town) Amit Kumar Pamasi have been placed under suspension.
Also, ADM (North) KC Surendra has been “recommended to be placed under suspension by the Union Home Ministry”.
“Navelendra Kumar Singh had passed an illegal order to hand over prime land in Bhalswa to a private individual, which was acquired for DUSIB (Delhi Urban Shelter Development Board),” a source said.
The action was taken against the other two as they implemented the “illegal” order passed by Singh after his transfer.
“The case for further investigation is being referred to CBI immediately,” the source added.
