Imphal: An Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) jawan has been placed under suspension for subletting his government allotted quarter to another family who is a civilian on Wednesday in Manipur.

As per the suspension order, M Ginchinkhup, a follower of the 5th IRB, was found subletting the government accommodation allotted to him to one Thangjagin Zou.

“In exercise of powers conferred upon me under Rule 66 of Assam Police Manual Part-III, do hereby place follower no. 9491 M Ginchinkhup, TRG Company, under suspension with immediate effect and until further orders,” said Amang Haokip, commandant of the 5th Indian Reserve Battalion, Thengu Chingjin.

The suspended IRB jawan has been asked to remain at Battalion headquarters of the 5th IRB during the suspension period. He will not leave the headquarters without taking permission, the order further said.

He will be entitled to subsistence allowance as admissible under rules during the period, it added.

Earlier, Chief Minister N Biren Singh had assured that all illegal occupiers of government allotted quarters in the state will be evicted. Singh had also warned those government employees who rent their allotted quarters to others with suspension or even termination.

“The state government will evict all illegal occupiers at government quarters and those government employees who are renting their quarters to others will be suspended, face suspension and further necessary action will be initiated for termination,” Singh had posted on Facebook.

This action is being taken up to check the illegal activities by many illegal occupiers of the quarters, he added.
