Within hours of the Allahabad High Court upholding its order to remove the Noida chairman and the CEO, the state government removed chairman Rakesh Bahadur on Thursday.
He was also removed as chairman of Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority and told to wait for a posting.
Sanjeev Saran, who was CEO when the High Court issued its initial order in November, was transferred last month.
Earlier in the day, the High Court dismissed the review petition filed by the UP government against the order.
Referring to the November 8 order regarding a preliminary CBI inquiry against the two officials, the court said if the CBI does not file a preliminary inquiry report on or before March 31, the state would be free to post the two officers anywhere in Uttar Pradesh, including the districts of western UP.
Passing the order, a division bench of Justices Laxmi Kanta Mohapatra and P K S Baghel said: "We modify the said order (dated November 8, 2012) to the extent that the CBI shall, as directed, conduct the preliminary inquiry in the matter and report back to the court on or before 31st March, 2013."
The court allowed the modification after it was argued by the advocate general that transfer and posting of officials was a concern of the state.
