On November 8, 2012, a division bench, led by then acting chief Justice Amitava Lala, had directed immediate removal of Bahadur and Saran. The state government had filed a review petition on November 19, 2012, against the order.
After over a month of the government not complying with the directions, the petitioners had filed a contempt petition in December last.
The PIL had demanded removal of the officials from their posts, as they had been accused of financial wrong-doing during their previous tenure on the same posts between 2005 and 2007. At that time, Samajwadi Party was in power. The officials were re-appointed in May last year, a couple of months after the SP returned to power.
