The Rajasthan Government has suspended IAS officer B B Mohanty in the alleged rape and exploitation case of a 23-year-old girl
Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje took the decision to suspend Mohanty, Chairman of Rajasthan Civil Services Appellate Tribunal, last night after receiving the report on the matter from the police department, a CMO spokesman said today.
Mohanty was earlier summoned by the DCP-South police to appear before them for questioning today, sources said. On Monday last, police team had searched his house but did not find him there.
The victim, a MBA student, had charged Mohanty, an Additional Chief Secretary rank officer, with sexually exploiting her. She has also recorded her statement before a magistrate earlier. The victim had demanded a CBI probe into the case following alleged delay in investigation and arrest of accused by the police.
A case of sexual exploitation and rape was lodged by the victim with the Mahesh Nagar Police Station on January 25, and since then Mohanty has been missing from home and office
