Delhi High Court on Thursday came to rescue of a poor workman by directing a Delhi Government Undertaking to pay to him wages from the date of removal i.e. 26th June, 1990 till the age of superannuation and thereafter, all the consequential relief of pension etc.

Shri Azad Singh working as Driver with Delhi Tourism and Transportation Corporation Limited (DTTCL) had filed petition in 1991 in Delhi High Court against removal from service on 26.06.1990. He was removed on the alleged charges that on 27.11.1987, he along with an outsider entered in the office of the management with a bottle of whisky and he started drinking there and misbehaved with the staff. Shri Azad Singh denied the correctness of the charges and claimed to have falsely implicated.

Justice M.L.Mehta accepting the arguments of petitioner’s Counsel Mr. Anuj Agarwal, that there was no positive and reliable evidence supporting the charges leveled against the petitioner and also that a reasonable opportunity to defend had not been afforded, quashed the removal order dated 26th June 1990.
