A PIL has been admitted by the Chhattisgarh High Court by challenging the appointment of Aman Singh, a non-IAS officer, as the state’s Energy Secretary.

The division bench of Justices Sunil Sinha and Prashant Mishra also sought a reply from Singh within three weeks.

Nitin Sinha, a Raipur resident, who has filed the petition, contends that appointment of somebody who is not from the IAS is not valid.
