CHANDIGARH: Haryana government has dropped the charge-sheet against senior bureaucrat Ashok Khemka in relation to the allegations of causing avoidable financial loss to the Haryana Seed Development Corporation in 2012-13, on account of unsold stocks of wheat seeds. The charge-sheet was served in July last year, where the Manohar Lal Khattar-led government alleged that the managing director of HSDC “failed to liquidate the stock of certified wheat seeds” and that produce valued £2.22 million remained unsold causing financial loss up to £341,000. This is the second charge-sheet that has been dropped against Ashok Khemka. Earlier in November 2015, state government had dropped the charge sheet against him, which was issued by the previous Congress government in December 2013 accusing him for “exceeding his jurisdiction”.
