Bhubaneswar: The State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) on Wednesday issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against School and Mass Education secretary Ranjana Chopra and Director of Elementary Education Chudamani Seth.

The NBWs were issued in connection with the regularisation of two Shikshya Karmis.

The tribunal had instructed for job regularisation of the two Shikshya Karmis in 2011, but as the instruction was not carried out, Chopra and Seth were asked to appear in person.

A bailable warrant was also issued earlier against them to depose before SAT.

However, after failing to appear even after the bailable warrants, the SAT proceeded to issue NBWs against them.
