District Development Commissioner in his report as sought by this Court has given a detailed account to justify his power to retain the petitioners at their original places as against the transfer order issued by the Director School Education, Jammu and issued notice and stayed the suspension order.
While staying the suspension order, Justice J R Kotwal asked Chief Secretary of the State for looking into the matter so that such avoidable situations leading to harsh actions against employees are avoided in future.
According to the petition filed by Talib Hussain and Riaz Ahmed that Vide order No. 857 DSEJ of 2016 dated 17.02.2016 issued by the Director School Education, Jammu/, Talib Hussain has been transferred from HSS, Doda to the office of ZEO, Bhatyas and Riaz Ahmed from HSS, Desa to the office of ZEO, Ghat.
