Samba : Senior Superintendent of Police Samba, Benam Tosh has removed from service another Cop , who had  been  unauthorizedly absenting himself from legitimate duties for 2  years , 1  months & 7 days  since 11th Feb 2021 . He has been struck off from the rolls of district police Samba and belt number allotted to him shall be treated as vacant.

    Removed Selection Grade Constable  Varinder Pal Singh was habitual of absenteeism and had remained absent from duties for as many as seven (7) years  and 1 month after his first appointment and was having inflicted several major and minor punishments  as per service records. 

     The departmental action against the official has been taken by SSP Samba in terms of Art-128 of J&K Civil Services Regulations (CSR, Vol-I ) after the suspended official did not bother to report back for duties for as  many as 2 years , 1  month and 7 days  despite several wireless signals, two Attendance Notices served upon him through concerned police station as well as through representatives of samba police  and  final Show Cause Notice, which was also got published in  newspapers . However, his  reply of Show Cause Notice , addressed to none , that too furnished  after expiry of stipulated time , was got examined through a board comprising of Addl SP Samba Surinder Choudhary, DySP Hqrs Mohd. Usman , DySP DAR Samba Ajay Anand and DySP (P) Mamta Sharma , who submitted written report with the remarks that the reply was " not convincing and unauthorized absence of over two years is not justified ". Moreover, Enquiry Officer (EO) had also recommended his removal from service under Art-128 of J&K CSR, Vol-I, as he was habitual of absenteeism and his continuation in police service was prejudicial to the interest of the department. Hence SSP Samba has taken appropriate departmental action under rules in the interest of the department. 

     This is the second cop removed from service on account of prolonged absence and gross service misconduct within two months in Samba district. Earlier, SSP Samba Benam Tosh had removed from service SgCt Amar Singh for unauthorizedly absence of over one year and seemingly no interest to serve  in Police department any more.
