Home Secretary Anil Goswami sacked

New Delhi: Home Secretary Anil Goswami was tonight removed from the post in the wake of controversy over his alleged attempt to stall the arrest of Saradha scam accused Matang Sinh, a former Congress minister at the centre.

“Home Secretary has been removed,” official sources said on a day of hectic activities following media reports that Goswami, a UPA goverment appointee, had tried to prevent CBI officers from carrying out Sinh’s arrest on Saturday.

He is the first Jammu and Kashmir cadre IAS officer to be appointed to the top post in North Block.
