Breaking his silence, Mohammed Mohsin, the IAS officer who was suspended by the Election Commission of India (ECI) on April 16 for checking the helicopter in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi was travelling, said he had not violated any rules and was unaware of the charges against him.
“I acted strictly as per the letter and spirit of the ECI guidelines. I have not violated any rules and I have not done anything wrong in this matter. This is why I asked for a copy of the report against me, but they have so far not shared this. I am fighting this case in the dark,” he said.
An officer of the 1996 Karnataka cadre, Mohsin was serving as general observer for the Sambalpur Lok Sabha constituency in Odisha, where the Prime Minister addressed a rally on April 17.
