HYDERABAD: The state government suspended senior IAS officer and principal secretary (Home) BP Acharya on Saturday who was arrested by the CBI in connection with APIIC-Emaar scam.

The state government said the 1983-batch IAS officer was placed under suspension under rule 3(2) of All India Services (Discipline & Appeal) Rules, 1969 in respect of a criminal offence under investigation.

According to the government order, "Acharya is under suspension with effect from January 30, the date on which he was detained.

He shall continue to be under suspension until further orders." As per All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, a member of the Service, who is detained in official custody, on a criminal charge or otherwise, for over 48 hours, he or she would be deemed to have been suspended.

Acharya, former chairman and managing director of Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC), is accused by CBI of having entered into a criminal conspiracy with officials of Emaar Group and unnamed public servants to cheat APIIC and secure wrongful gains to Dubaibased infrastructure firm Emaar.

Shifted to Chanchalguda Jail

Suspended IAS officer B P Acharya, accused in the Emaar-APIIC scam, was shifted to Chanchalguda Central Prison from Osmania General Hospital on Saturday after he recovered from illness.

It may be recalled that Acharya who was arrested by the CBI in connection with the Emaar scam, was admitted to NIMS after he complained of chest pain.

After he was discharged from NIMS, Acharya was produced before the special CBI court and the magistrate sent him to judicial remand till February 15.

When he was shifted to jail, he suddenly collapsed.

The jail authorities shifted him to Osmania General Hospital.
