ADC Pulak Mahanta suspended for allegedly showing disrespect to CJI
GUWAHATI: Pulak Mahanta, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (M), has been suspended from his position on allegations that he disrespected the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi.
A video related to Ranjan Gogoi's recent visit to Assam circulated on social media, where Pulak Mahanta could be heard addressing the Chief Justice as 'Eitu' which, in Assamese, is considered to be derogatory when referred to a person of eminence.
Various sources have alleged that the ADC failed to provide Gogoi the respect that he commands, during his visit to Guwahati.
This was Ranjan Gogoi's first visit to Guwahati after taking charge as the Chief Justice of India.
