Criminal cases will disqualify anyone from govt job ?

Querist : Anonymous (Querist) 18 June 2021 This query is : Resolved 
Is there any law (or Judgments) which says 'pending criminal cases will disqualify anyone from government job' ?

Yes. If there is a criminal case against a person, he is not eligible for a Government job. For judgments search
T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Expert) 20 June 2021
A person facing criminal cases cannot be considered suitable for appointment in government service unless acquitted of the charges, the Supreme Court has held.
The court, however, directed his appointment subject to the final outcome of the criminal trial pending against him.

Thank you Mr. Kalaiselvan. Could you please let us know name of Supreme Court Judgement ?

Quashing the appointment of constable SK Nazrul Islam, the apex court said, "Surely, the authorities entrusted with the responsibility of appointing constables were under duty to verify the antecedents of a candidate to find out whether he is suitable for the post of constable.

A bench of justices R V Raveendran and A K Patnaik passed the judgement while upholding the West Bengal government's appeal challenging the high court's direction to appoint Islam despite the fact that he was facing criminal charges.
