Aviation university registrar reinstated

Lucknow: Almost after two years of termination, the Union ministry of civil aviation on Friday reinstated the first registrar of Rajiv Gandhi National Aviation University, Amethi, Jitendra Singh. Hewas sacked on January 8, 2020.

The reinstatement order issued by under-secretary, civil aviation ministry, Ambuj Sharma said Singh is reinstated with immediate effect as per the orders of the court. A division bench of the Allahabad High Court had termed the termination of probation of Singh as illegal and had remitted the matter to the university asking them to proceed as per law and pass a fresh order.

Singh’s termination order in 2020 stated three grounds — obstructing an officer appointed by the government from discharging his duties, fabricating a complaint of sexual harassment by involving two girl students of the university, and wilful insubordination and indiscipline by exhibiting defiance to official orders.
