New Delhi. The Delhi High Court has refused to direct the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) constable, who was given compulsory retirement for tarnishing the image of an officer. A constable sent offensive messages to two hundred other employees on WhatsApp with the intention of defaming an officer. The court also did not accept the constable’s argument.
A bench of Justice Manmohan Singh and Justice Naveen Chawla dismissed the constable’s plea, saying his argument that the message was sent for information to higher authorities was untrue. The court said the petitioner sent a message to the concerned DIG (Operations) after sending a message to two hundred employees. The court dismissed the constable’s application.

According to a message sent by the appellant constable, a company commander was in a hotel room with a prostitute. In a September 1 order, the bench said, “In order to tarnish the name and picture of the AC (name not disclosed), the petitioner sent WhatsApp messages to more than two hundred CRPF personnel without verification and without verification to the higher authorities.”
The court said the petitioner sent a message to a WhatsApp group that included 200 CRPF employees and a constable who was its ‘administrator’. The constable also sent a picture with a message which could not be uploaded due to low internet speed.
