In March 2017, Deepak as Chhapra DM had suspended the arms licenses of criminal-turned politicians who belonged to the Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) party.

Following this, he was removed from his post for an alleged dereliction of his duty that led to the boat mishap killing 24 people during the Makar Sankranti. (ANI)
