Jhansi: A day after tendering his resignation alleging of not being sanctioned leave to take care of his Covid ailing wife, CO Sadar, Manish Kumar Sonkar withdrew it on Tuesday after the matter was sorted out by DIG Jhansi range Jogendra Kumar.
Talking to TOI, the DIG said, “I have gone through the matter and it has been settled down after which he (Sonkar) withdrew his resignation. He had some issues of taking leave which has been sorted out”.
On the other hand, the PPS Association on Tuesday raised the issue in front of DGP Hitesh Chandra Awasthi and additional chief secretary, Avanish Kumar Awasthi which was later on tweeted by them asking justice for Sonkar.
On Sunday, Sonkar had tendered his resignation on whatsapp to SSP Jhansi, Rohan P Kanay in which he had mentioned that his wife is Covid positive and that he has to look after his four-year old daughter for which he wanted a week-long leave which he was not granted.
On Monday a WhatsApp message allegedly sent by Sonkar went viral in which he talked about his problems in an emotional way.
Sonkar was initially posted in Mauranipur and on his request was given charge in Jhansi but despite that he did not report on duty on May 2 during counting of votes without any prior notice. On the other hand, despite several calls made by TOI on the official number of Manish Sonkar to get his version, he did not pick the phone.
