DIG Jails demoted to superintendent rank in UP

Lucknow: In a rare instance, the Uttar Pradesh government has demoted DIG (prisons) Shailendra Kumar Maitreya to the rank of senior jail superintendent allegedly after not finding his promotion to the Deputy Inspector General rank in 2021 as per genuine procedure.

It was stated that Maitreya was promoted without having clearance in some of the departmental inquiries pending against him in past incidents.

A press release from the office of jail minister Dharamveer Prajapati stated that principal secretary (jail admn) Rajesh Kumar Singh issued an order regarding the demotion on the direction of the minister.

The demotion was ordered in view of the state government’s zero-tolerance policy against corruption and irregularities, it stated.

Maitreya was suspended after his role was found doubtful while being posted as jail superintendent in Basti in 2007.

He was accused of bias while probing preparation of power of attorney by Shine City multi-crore fraud case key accused Asif Naseem while being lodged in jail.

His power of attorney was allegedly prepared by forging signatures of jail officials in August, 2022, said officials.
