HYDERABAD: IAS officer VS Bhaskar who is facing charges of sexual harassment of a woman colleague, on Wednesday withdrew his writ petition filed before the High Court seeking to quash the interim order of the Central Administrative Tribunal transferring him from his posting as UIDAI deputy director-general.

On Wednesday, the petitioner's counsel P Bhaskar sought permission of the bench comprising chief justice Madan B Lokur and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar to withdraw the petition filed by his client.

The assistant solicitor-general had earlier informed the court that the Planning Commission has requested the department of personnel and training to repatriate Bhaskar to his parent cadre (Assam-Meghalaya).

It may be recalled that Bhaskar had stated in his petition that there may be some technical errors in constitution of the complaints committee and the enquiry procedure.

The applicant S Padmaja, assistant directorgeneral, UIDAI had complained of sexual harassment by Bhaskar and the tribunal had directed the Centre to take action not later than 15 days from February 3.
