The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Wednesday directed the DGP, Bhopal to decide the representations for compassionate appointment in 60 days of the petitioner, who is the only daughter of a woman constable.
The petitioner, Aneela Khan, is aggrieved by non-consideration of her representations for compassionate appointment. She is the only daughter of her parents. Her mother was working in the establishment of Madhya Pradesh Police as a woman constable with badge No.1318 and posted at Sagar District. She expired on 30.08.2012 in harness.
The petitioner filed an application along with an affidavit for compassionate appointment on 08.11.2012 before the respondent/authority. Thereafter, she filed another application on 19.12.2017 before the collector, Sagar, however, till date the application has not been decided. Therefore the Petitioner approached the High Court that respondents may be directed to decide the pending representation of the petitioner.
Manoj Kushwaha, a panel lawyer, submitted that the representations were filed by the petitioner way back in 2012 and 2017. She may be directed to file a fresh representation before the appropriate authority in this regard and that will be considered, as per law.
A Single-Judge Bench of Justice Nandita Dubey, while considering the matter, ordered, “This petition is disposed of with a direction to the petitioner to file a fresh representation along with an affidavit and supporting document as well as a certified copy of the order passed today, before the respondent no.2/DGP, Bhopal within a period of seven days from today, and the respondent, in turn, shall decide the same within a further period of 60 days, as per law.”
