NEW DELHI: The union Home ministry on Thursday declared null and void the suspension of two officers belonging to the 'DANICS' cadre by the Delhi government.

This comes as at least 200 senior bureaucrats of Delhi government went on a day's leave of absence on Thursday as a sign of protest against the suspension of the two officials.
