The son of ASI Shambhu Dayal Meena, who was stabbed to death while apprehending a snatcher in West Delhi last month, will be appointed as a sub-inspector in the Delhi Police after L-G VK Saxena’s intervention.
L-G Vinai Kumar Saxena invoked his special powers in recognition of his father’s exemplary courage and valour in the line of duty. He invoked powers under Rule 30 of the Delhi Police (Appointment & Recruitment) Rules, 1980, and relaxed the prescribed criterion to facilitate Deepak’s appointment following the recommendations of Delhi Police chief Sanjay Arora for such relaxation,
Late Shambhu Dayal's son, Deepak Meena’s appointment has been done on compassionate grounds.
ASI Meena was taking the accused to the police station when the latter whipped out a knife and attacked him multiple times. He succumbed to his injuries on January 8.
After his death, Shambhu Dayal’s wife Sanjana submitted an application for Deepak’s appointment on compassionate grounds. The proposal was examined but he was found short of some physical requirements. However, as the family was facing financial crunch after the death of ASI Shambu, the L-G invoked special powers for the appointment of his son as SI.
