The centre has suspended two senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers and sent show-cause notices to two others on charge of "dereliction" of their duty in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak in the national capital. "These officers have failed to ensure public health and safety during the lockdown restrictions to combat COVID-19," the government said.

Additional chief secretary, transport department and principal secretary, finance department, have been suspended; while additional chief secretary, home and land buildings department, and sub-divisional magistrate, Seelampur, have been asked to respond to the show-cause notices.

"It has been brought to the notice of the competent authority that the officers, who were responsible to ensure strict compliance to the instructions issued by Chairperson, National Executive Committee, formed under Disaster Management Act 2005 regarding containment of spread of COVID-19, have prima facie failed to do so," the statement said.
