The commissioner explained that the officials were dismissed based on the recommendations of an investigative committee set up by the government, following the complaints levelled against them.
He stated that their dismissal was in line with Civil Service Rule No.04406, adding that the measure was to serve as a deterrent to others. (NAN)
