An Indian Revenue Service Officer named Sohail Ansari is currently in the middle of several controversies. The officer, who has been under the radar of his superiors, was recently arrested in a case of stalking and molestation.
Ansari, according to a report by The New Indian, was allegedly involved in several acts of “indiscipline and misconduct” during his training period in 2012.
According to the latest development, Ansari was arrested following a complaint against him by an IAS officer who made a shocking revelation of being molested by the IRS officer since 2020. She filed a complaint under sections 354 (assault to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354-D (Stalking), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word/act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC.
Besides, Ansari was also found to be involved in an illegitimate financial transaction, which resulted from his abuse of the official position, falsification, and making baseless and wild allegations against the course team and other batchmates. He was also accused of threatening another trainee officer named Rajesh Kumar.
“Sohail Malik Ansari, a dentist by qualification aged 30 years old, could not withstand the rigours of the hectic training schedule, which starts at 5:45 am and runs up to late in the evening on some specified occasions.” read the inquiry report, submitted by an ADG-II level officer.
“The course team was also called upon to give its comments on the recommendations of the disciplinary committee. The course team suggested that the conduct of Dr Sohail M Ansari is inimical to organisational interests and opined that the officer trainee is unsuitable to hold any post in Government Service and recommended his removal from the service,” the report continued.
Ansari was declared as “unsuitable to hold any post in government service” post the inquiry.
