FIR sparked a war of words between Deoghar DC and Nishikant Dubey

Nishikant Dubey alleged that Deoghar DC has always acted as a political and personal agent of Chief Minister Hemant Soren. “The DC has been pestering me with fake cases for a long time. He has no probity to become an IAS. It has so many problems with Deoghar airport that it creates obstacles in the night landing and take-off facilities,” Dubey said.

Nishikant Dubey claimed that Delhi Police also filed an FIR against Manjunath Bhajantri under Sections 124 B, 353, 120 B, 441, 448, 201 and 506 of the IPC and 2/2s of the official secrets.

But it is assumed that Nishikant Dubey also accused Deoghar DC of unauthorized entry into the premises of Deoghar airport.

Twitter was inundated with arguments and counter-arguments and the two threw accusations at each other.

Deoghar DC in his Twitter reply said the night landing issue is pending. “But, when the night landing / IFR facility is not there and so many flights are canceled every other day, how did your charter plane take off at 6:17 p.m. when bedtime sun was at 6:03 p.m.? he asked. DC further stated that Godda MP was not allowed to enter the ATC room either alone or with his children and followers.

Nishikant Dubey quickly retaliated and said he had obtained the necessary permission from the airport authority and as chairman of the airport advisory committee he had the right to inspect. MP asked Deoghar DC Who gave him permission to enter the CCTV room, apron and ATC tower? “You broke all the standards. Pathetic,” Nishikant Dubey tweeted.

Nishikant Dubey sent a letter to Deoghar SP to file an FIR against Manjunath Bhajantri for his unauthorized entry into the ATC building, preventing him from performing his duties as Chairman of the Airport Advisory Committee and other charges.
