14 days judicial custody for tainted IAS officer

November 30, 2010 17:48 IST

A court on Tuesday sent suspended Indian Administrative Services officer Ravi Inder Singh, accused of leaking sensitive information, to judicial remand for 14 days, rejecting the plea of police which wanted to quiz him for three more days.

Special Judge Sangeeta Dhingra Sehgal also posted the hearing on his bail application for December 4. The IAS officer, who was working as a Director Internal Security in Ministry of Home Affairs, was produced in court after the end of his six-day police remand.

The special cell of the Delhi police arrested him on November 23 after two days of extensive interrogation in detention. The police sought his further remand on the ground that they were yet to recover two out of the four mobile phones that he was allegedly using to maintain contacts with unauthorised persons.

Public prosecutor Rajeev Mohan said that except one official phone, three mobiles were obtained on fictitious identity.

Advocate O P Wadhwa, appearing for Singh, opposed the application on the ground that he had already been in the custody of the investigators for six days.

After hearing the arguments, the court sent the accused IAS officer to judicial custody for 14 days.
