• Whether removal from services on the basis of confession letter

On the first day of departmental enquiry i was forced to submit confession of articles of charges without getting the copies of complaints made against me and on the basis of that letter i was removed from my services. After long 19 years legal battle the copies of the complaints supplied to me. There is no FIR/GD/Case against me made by either management or the complainants to the local P.S. Now my question is that whether this confession is enough for my removal?

If there is confession statement by you then such statement is binding on you till you challenge such process of obtaining confession statement. Your removal based on confession statement is valid

Once you have made the confession the management can terminate you from service by using it against you. A letter whereunder an employee confesses to the allegations leveled against him is the best evidence that can come against him. As a corollary thereto, unless and until a challenge is set up to the confession the same will indubitably hold its ground.

Though forced confession has no meaning,but you will have to prove that it was a forced confession for taking any legal help
