Controversial IAS officer Dahiya suspended in Gujarat

Gandhinagar, Aug 14 (UNI) Gujarat Government on Wednesday suspended 2010 batch IAS officer and joint secretary in the General Administration Department (Planning) Gaurav Dahiya against whom a woman has leveled allegations of bigamy and torture.
The government order read that Dahiya was facing serious charges of misconduct and moral turpitude. He has been suspended in exercise of powers conferred by clause (a) of sub rule (1) of rule 3 of the All India Services (Discipline & Appeal) Rules 1969, with immediate effect. Orders of fixing the headquarters of Dahiya during the period of suspension would be issued separately.
On July 25, a five-member all women committee led by IAS officer Suaina Tomar was constituted on the instructions of CM Vijay Rupani to probe the sensational allegations leveled by a woman against Dahiya.

Notably, separate investigation of the matter by police and departmental inquiry were also on.

A woman identified as Leena had earlier last month alleged that Dahiya had compelled her to marry him secretly and later tortured her for giving birth to a girl child.
The officer who was already married had denied the allegations saying that the lady was trying to blackmail him and that he had already given information about it to police and the department in June and February this year. During the primary probe, his claim was found incorrect.
The woman had filed a complaint with the crime against women cell of Delhi police earlier last month which has now been transferred to the sector 7 police station of Gandhinagar. Dahiya was Director of the National Health Mission till recently and was transferred to GAD only last month.
The woman, in her complaint, alleged that Dahiya had befriended her through Facebook while he was in Mexico in October, 2017 and she was a final year student in Delhi. Later, he came closer to her and requested her to marry saying that he has filed a divorce petition against his first wife. But she was not willing to marry him as her parents were against it and she felt sympathatic towards his first wife. The IAS had taken her objectionable pictures after drugging her during their stay in Shangrila hotel in Delhi and had threatened her to upload these on social media if she did not marry her. He also threatened to commit suicide if she did not agree.
He also said that he won't let her marry anybody else.Though her parents were also not willing ,they married in Tirupati Balaji temple in February last year. She alleged that when she gave birth to a girl child, he also tortured her saying that he wanted a male child.
''When I married him, on the very first night I got to know that he did not want to make it public. He was not willing to give me photos of marriage not was interested in getting it registered. I somehow got a few photos from his phone which he was now calling morphed. He gave me money but never touched our daughter. After he came in touch with me he used to come to Delhi quite frequently. These details can be verified through his travel record. Also our going to Tirupati for marriage can be verified through flight related travel data. He is not meeting me for last three months. DNA test of my daughter could be done to verify whether he was her father or not. I don't want my daughter to live an orphan's life. He has already ruined my life but I don't want it to happen to her,'' she had said.
The woman also alleged that Dahiya had married a third woman also.
