Chandigarh, September 9

Nearly eight months after the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) set aside Dinkar Gupta's appointment as Punjab Director-General of Police (DGP), the Punjab and Haryana High Court today reserved its verdict on a bunch of petitions filed by the state, the top cop and other petitioners.

Appearing before the Bench of Justice Jaswant Singh and Justice Sant Parkash, senior advocate Maninder Singh submitted that UPSC guidelines had been followed 28 times across India while appointing DGPs. The respondent side's argument was the guidelines were never challenged. It made the matters worse as CAT had virtually set aside the guidelines and thereby rendered bad 28 appointments across the country.

Referring to the CAT judgment, he said it armed anyone to go ahead and challenge all 28 appointments made in terms of the guidelines and this could not be permitted.
