Charge sheeted officers on lucrative posts
PESHAWAR—Over 20 senior officers of BPS-17 to BPS 20 of Communication and Works Department KP who were penalized and charge-sheeted in various departmental enquiries have been placed against lucrative posts in higher ranks instead of taking action against them.
Official sources on condition of anonymity told APP on Monday that majority of the SDOs, XENs, Chief Engineers who were awarded major or minor penalties in the findings of various enquiry reports have been reposted against senior positions during last one year.
In most of the cases, the charge sheeted officers have been exonerated by Chief Executive of the province apparently under political pressure.
This has created serious resentment and sense of deprivation among the honest and upright officers in C&W Department.
The inquiries against the officers are usually initiated on various charges like corruption, misappropriation of funds, fudging, and misuse of power or authority and misconduct etc.
