SC Asks Pradeep Sharma to File Compliance Report

New Delhi

The Supreme Court today directed suspended Gujarat IAS officer Pradeep Sharma to file compliance report of its order passed in 2011 directing him to delete portion of his petition relating to Narendra Modi's personal life.

A bench headed by Justice Ranjana P Desai said there should not be any disrespect to court's order and directed both Sharma and Gujarat state government to file compliance reports by August 6.

The apex court had on May 12, 2011 taken strong exception to the submissions of Sharma aimed at tarnishing the image of Modi and directed him to delete those paragraphs from the petition.

The IAS officer is facing four criminal cases including his alleged involvement in land scam registered against him since 2008 in Rajkot area. He approached the apex court seeking transfer of cases against him to CBI.
