G Krishnaiah murder case: IAS officer Smita Sabharwal protested against the release of Anand Mohan – requested SC to intervene on the release of the IAS murder convict

Senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer and secretary to Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Smita Sabharwal took to her Twitter handle on Wednesday to urge the Supreme Court and the Chief Justice of India to intervene in the release of gangster-politician Anand. Mohan Singh was convicted in the murder case of Telugu Dalit IAS officer G Krishnaiah in Bihar.

Expressing solidarity with Krishnaiah’s family, Sabharwal quote-tweeted the statement of the Central IAS Association expressing deep disappointment over the Bihar government’s decision to release the culprits involved in the brutal killing of the late IAS officer.

“Sometimes one wonders whether being a civil servant is worth it. Request SC and CJI to intervene,” wrote Sabharwal.

“The conviction on the charge of murder of a public servant on duty cannot be reclassified to a less heinous category. Amending an existing classification, which leads to the release of a convicted murderer of a public servant on duty, amounts to denial of justice,” the IAS Association’s statement further read. The association further requested the Bihar government to reconsider its decision at the earliest.
