The hearing on PIL against IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal’s suspension was on Friday adjourned to August 19.

Nagpal's suspension was challenged in the Allahabad High Court through a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by social activist Nutan Thakur at the Lucknow bench of the court.

28-year-old Nagpal, a 2009 batch IAS officer of Punjab cadre shifted to UP cadre in August last year, was suspended for demolishing a wall of a religious place but opposition allege that her crackdown on mining activities led to the suspension.

Nagpal was in news for curbing illegal mining activities in the district and got over two dozen FIR registered against those involved in illegal sand mining in G B Nagar.

Special flying squads were formed by the officer to stop the raging menace along Yamuna and Hindon rivers in western Uttar Pradesh.
