Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta, on Saturday evening, cleared a ‘house motion’ moved by Director General of Police V. Dinesh Reddy in the AP High Court against the decision of the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) that declined to grant him interim relief to continue in the post till his plea seeking a term of one more year was disposed of by the Tribunal. The plea will come up before a Division Bench of the court on Sunday morning.

The CAT, however, admitted the original application and granted four weeks to the government to file counter affidavit.

The State government has notified that a ceremonial farewell would be accorded to Mr. Dinesh Reddy who is retiring on Monday on attaining the age of superannuation.
