Sacked disabled staffer moves HC against judge


July 19: A 47-year-old office assistant has approached the Madras high court challenging his dismissal from service for allegedly refusing to remove and throw household garbage into a dustbin kept outside the house while on duty at a judge’s residence.

A division bench comprising Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and Justice K.K. Sasidharan before whom the petition was filed by office assistant A. Ramamurthy, ordered notice to the registrar general of the Madras HC, principal district judge and III additional district judge (ADJ) (CBI cases), Coimbatore.

The petitioner, who has vision impairment, was on July 12, 2002, asked to discharge duties in the residence of III ADJ. There he refused to clear garbage as it was not his duty. He was suspended and dismissed in 2004.

His case should have been considered under section 38 of the Persons with Disabilities (equal opportunities, protection of rights and full participation) Act, he contended.
