Jain talks of “dignity of IAS”
Naveen Jain, a 2001 batch Rajasthan cadre IAS who went missing and then re-appeared, said that ministers and the government should be careful that IAS officers’ dignity is taken care of. Jain disappeared from a restaurant after he was denied an official accommodation in Jaipur. Jain was hiding in Chandigarh, but decided to come back after he came to know from media reports that his wife Sunita fell ill due to anxiety and was admitted to the ICU of a Jaipur hospital.
