New Delhi: IAS officer and former Home Ministry official RVS Mani has taken voluntary retirement with his lawyer claiming that he was being harassed by unknown persons in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case. He has applied for voluntary retirement even as four years of his service are left.
Mani had signed the two affidavits in the case in 2009. The first claimed that Ishrat is a terrorist and objected to a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation. The second affidavit filed later claimed that MHA was in favour of a CBI probe.
An inquiry into both the statements is on, which the lawyer claims amounts to harassment.
