Opposition seeks action against Devendra Fadnavis over ‘transfer’ of dead official


Mumbai: Opposition is training guns on Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for a transfer order of an Excise Inspector, who had died three years ago. Name of this Excise Inspector is Sandip Maruti Sabale who reportedly died three years ago in a road accident.

Fadnavis , as in-charge of the Excise Department, had signed the order approving the transfer of Excise Inspector Sandip Maruti Sabale from Kohlapur to Nashik. After the matter came to light, the Maharashtra government suspended a clerk for the gaffe. However, the Opposition is demanding a high-level inquiry to probe the matter.

Firstpost reported that the transfer order had mandated that Sabale must assume his duties in Nashik with immediate effect – failing to do so would invite disciplinary action.

Tragically, Sabale had died three years ago in a road accident and, since then, his wife has been running from pillar to post seeking a job in the department on compassionate grounds. The Opposition has claimed that large-scale irregularities were committed in the recent transfer of 220 Excise department officials.
