Dismissed IAS officer Ramesh Thete threatens self-immolation in front of PMO

AN IAS officer of 1993 batch Ramesh Thete, who was dismissed from services in connection with a bribery case, has reportedly threatened self immolation in front of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) if he was not reinstated by February 5.
According to a section of media reports, originating from Jabalpur of Madhya Pradesh, Thete was upset as he believed he was hounded because he is a Dalit officer. The bribery dates back to 2002 when the principal of a technical institute complained against him of demanding Rs one lakh bribe. The IAS officer has now claimed that he was not reinstated even though both the Supreme Court and the High Court had acquitted him.
He had further claimed that the Union law ministry had earlier cleared his file of reinstating.
