Suspended AAI employee gets relief from Bombay High Court

Mumbai: In a relief to a suspended employee of Airports Authority of India (AAI), the Bombay High Court has asked him to make a fresh representation to a higher authority against the action.
Hearing a petition filed by K S Lakshminarasimhan and his wife S Mangla, both employees of AAI, a division bench of Justices Anoop Mohta and A A Sayyed last week allowed Lakshminarasimhan to make a fresh representation to S Raheja, Member (Planning) AAI who is holding charge of the post of AAI Chairman for three months.

Lakshminarasimhan contended that he was suspended because his wife was a whistle-blower in a scam in AAI pertaining to high-rise buildings being allowed in the vicinity of the airports and also because he had appeared along with his wife in the High Court during the hearing of a PIL about alleged violation of safety rules due to such buildings.

His wife had been named as one of the respondents along with AAI in the PIL.

He said AAI had suspended him contending that he had appeared in the High Court along with his wife without taking its approval.

However, Lakshminarasimhan said he had documents to show that he appeared in the court on orders from his bosses.
