The Home Ministry suspended two senior Delhi government officers on Sunday while two others were issued show-cause notices for dereliction of duty over movement of migrant workers during the nationwide lockdown imposed to contain Covid-19 spread. The Additional Chief Secretary of the Transport Department and the Principal Secretary of Finance, GNCTD & Divisional Commissioner were suspended with immediate effect, while the Additional Chief Secretary of the Home and Land Buildings Departments and SDM Seelampur were issued notices. The notices were 'for failing to ensure public health and safety' during the lockdown. It added that, due to the serious lapses in performance of their duties, the competent authority has initiated disciplinary proceedings against them.
