Rule 11(7), 11(11)

read with
The Police Officers (Special Provisions) Ordinance, 1976
Section 6
Cardinal principal of natural justice requires supply of enquiry report to the person against whom departmental action is being taken– The Tariqul was on deputation in RAB and there is specific Rules i.e. Rules, 2005 providing special provisions for disciplinary action against the persons who are working in RAB. Rule 11(7) of the Rules 2005 specifically provide that,- “(৭) তদন্তকারী কর্মকর্তা প্রতিটি অভিযোগ আলাদা আলাদাভাবে আলোচনা করিয়া তাহার রিপোর্ট কর্তৃপক্ষের নিকট পেশ করিবেন এবং উহার এক কপি অভিযুক্ত ব্যক্তিকে সরবরাহ করিবেন। " Moreover, sub-rule (11) of rule 11 provides as under: “(১১) এই বিধির বিধান সাপেক্ষে বিভাগীয় কার্য-ধারায় আপীল ও রিভিউসহ অন্যান্য ক্ষেত্রে সরকারী কর্মচারী (শৃঙ্খলা ও আপীল) বিধিমালা, ১৯৮৫, এর বিধানাবলী প্রয়োজনীয় অভিযোজনসহ (mutatis mutandis) অনুসরণীয় হইবে। " So, Government Servant Disciplinary Appeals Rules, 1985, is also applicable in case of departmental proceeding of the persons who are working in RAB on deputation and rule 7(5) of the said Rules, 1985 also requires furnishing of a copy of inquiry report to the person against whom departmental action is being taken.
Jurisdiction of RAB commander-2 to initiate a departmental proceeding against Tariqul, it appears that the Commander/Lieutenant Colonel is a director as per schedule of the Rules, 2005 and so, under the Rules, 2005 he had jurisdiction to initiate departmental proceeding, etc. against the petitioner-appellant, respondent herein. However, in the case in our hand the departmental proceeding was not under the Rules, 2005. Thus, the second part of the decision of the Appellate Tribunal so, far as it relates to the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Colonel, we are of the view that if a departmental action is taken under the Rules, 2005 in such case, the Lieutenant Colonel, as a director, shall have jurisdiction to take departmental action against a police constable on deputation in RAB.
We have already seen that the departmental proceeding was not held properly due to non-supply of copy of enquiry report to Tariqul. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed. …Government of Bangladesh =VS= Md. Tariqul Islam, (Civil), 2020 (1) [8 LM (AD) 40] ....View Full Judgment
