LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday suspended district magistrates of Gonda and Fatehpur for different irregularities.
Official sources here said J B Singh, District Magistrate of Gonda, was suspended for irregularities in food distribution and illegal mining.
Similarly, Fatehpur District Magistrate Kumar Prashant was put on suspension for illegal mining and transferring a government land to a private person.
Sources said after suspension, a probe has been ordered against the two IAS officers. They have been attached to the state revenue department.
The suspension was made after the Chief Minister's office received complaints against them and during a preliminary inquiry, they were found correct.
Meanwhile, Mr Adityanath removed two private secretaries of Primary Education Minister Anupuma Jaiswal on Wednesday night.
They were Rajkumar and Ajit Jaiswal and were removed after some Basic Shiksha Adhikari complained about their demand for money on transfer and posting.
