Justice Devendra Kumar Upadhyaya gave this order on a contempt petition filed by Thakur alleging non-compliance of an earlier order of the court.

Thakur said that the court had directed the state government on January 13 this year to provide all departmental inquiry-related documents to him within four weeks but instead of providing them, the state government filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) before the Supreme Court which was dismissed on March 14.

After this, he filed this contempt petition in which the court passed today’s order.
