Rumours Of Abusive Tripura DM's Suspension False, Only Inquiry Ordered Until Now: ReportDistrict Magistrate Shailesh Kumar Yadav

Contrary to claims in the media, abusive IAS officer Shailesh Kumar Yadav has not been suspended for abusing and thrashing members of a wedding in Tripura, East Mojo has reported.

A few media outlets and prominent social media handles had claimed that Yadav was suspended following shocking visuals from a wedding raid where he was seen abusing his power, threatening people with arrest and also allegedly thrashing a Hindu priest.

He was also caught on camera making statements like, "Arrest these guys, you people have wilfully violated government order...I am bloody your district magistrate...tum log saale, bloody you are all hand in gloves with these people, count and tell me this is my command as a district magistrate".

As per the East Mojo report, Yadav is still the DM of West Tripura district and no official confirmation of his suspension has been made. It adds that state secretariat officials have said that Chief Minister Biplab Deb has ordered an inquiry into the incident and sought a report from the chief secretary. A committee of two IAS officers has been formed for the same.

Calls are growing for action against the DM with five BJP MLAs too joining the chorus for the same.
