Raipur: A woman jail official in Chhattisgarh was on Saturday suspended following her “objectionable” post on naxalism on Facebook, a senior official said.

“The prison department has suspended Assistant Jail Superintendent Varsha Dongre, who was posted in Raipur Central Jail,” Deputy Inspector General (Jail) KK Gupta told PTI Bhasha.

“We had sought an explanation from her on the Facebook post, but so far she has not responded. The state government has issued guidelines for government officers for using social media, but Dongre has violated those directions,” he said.

Earlier, the department had received information that Dongre had reportedly posted some comment on social media over naxalism and tribal-related issues after the Maoist attack in Sukma on April 24, another official said.

Deputy Jail Superintendent RR Rai was assigned to probe the matter to ascertain whether such comment was made by the officer and what was the objective of the comment, the officer said.

“The officer had issued a notice to Dongre seeking her reply in two days. But she failed to give a response and went on leave,” he said.

However, the post that was in Hindi, was deleted later.

On April 24, as many as 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in a Naxal ambush in Burkapal area of the state’s Sukma district.
