Patna (Bihar), November 20, 2017: A former IPS officer who served his office with all integrity is battling for life in a private hospital in Patna.

Mansoor Ahmad, who got retired in November 2016 from Bihar Fire Service, without any rank, was charged with cases pertaining to Domestic Violence and Dowry Act but got cleared by the court. In spite of the court’s order, the state government has regularly been humiliating him for no reasons, his son told The Morning Chronicle.

The retired police officer was admitted to a private hospital after brain stroke and got operated a week back. Since then, his family has been arranging his treatment expenses from different sources despite the fact that the state government owes Rs.20 lacs to him.

“In April 2016, my father was suspended after he asked permission from the state government to hold a Press conference to expose the alleged misdeeds of the chief secretary Anjani Kumar Singh and the principal home secretary Amir Subhani,” Danish Ahmed, his only son told TMC.

Although Ahmad is back to his consciousness after surgery today, he is still in intensive care unit. His son has so far spent approximately four lacs. However, he is facing acute financial crunch and his daily expenses of 20 to 30 thousands are being met with great difficulty.

In response to a report published in The Telegraph, principal secretary, home, Amir Subhani, clarified on Sunday that only the payment of the officer’s gratuity had been withheld, according to norms. Three departmental proceedings were still pending against Mansoor, he said. Reacting to Government’s response, Danish said that they are all inconsequential.

Independent sources confirmed to TMC that Mansoor Ahmad and his family had suffered a lot due to insensitivity of the government.
