Greater Noida, Aug 2: The suspension of Greater Noida SDM Durga Shakti Nagpal by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has seemingly exposed a strong nexus between political agents, the sand mining mafia and realtors in the NCR districts of western Uttar Pradesh.
Nagpal's widely-condemned suspension, however, is not the first case of an attack on an upright officer.
In the past, an attempt was made to kill then sub-division magistrate (SDM) Vishal Singh. A police complaint was filed. But nothing happened and Vishal Singh was eventually shunted out.
