Bureaucrats not above law says Hon'ble Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today refused to show leniency and directed the Centre to obey a Gauhati High Court order on the issue of contempt against top CRPF officials saying that bureaucrats are not above the law.

The top court only dispensed with the direction asking the Director General of CRPF to be personally present before the high court, which has initiated a contempt proceeding against some top officials of the paramilitary force.

It said a DIG-level officer would remain present before the high court, which had directed personal appearance of the top CRPF official in a matter in which the court had ordered reinstatement of a constable whose service was terminated in June 2007 after a disciplinary proceeding.
