Gwalior, January 17: A government officer in Madhya Pradesh has been removed from services in connection with an alleged "sex for job" offer. The accused, identified as Sanjeev Kumar Tantuvay, who was serving as production officer for Madhya Pradesh Seeds and Farm Development Corporation (MPSFDC), had allegedly asked sexual favours from a female job seeker. The dismissal came after the police registered a case against him in Gwalior.
