Buri Niyat? Haryana Officer Who Filed Police Complaint Against CM Khattar’s Office Receives Transfer Order
The Haryana forest department officer, who had lodged a complaint with Haryana Police after sensitive documents related to whistleblower bureaucrat Sanjiv Chaturvedi’s case went missing from Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s office, received a transfer notice on Wednesday.
The complaint was filed on May 21 by Rajendra Singh Chillar, superintendent of the forests department. Chillar is now transferred to the Animal Husbandry branch.
Four files containing sensitive official records pertaining to the legal dispute regarding quashing of President’s orders and a Union government panel’s recommendations for a CBI probe into the scams exposed by whistleblower Chaturvedi had gone missing from the Haryana government’s record, according to an RTI. The RTI, filed in March by Indian Forest Services (IFS) officer Chaturvedi, a Magsaysay awardee, had revealed that the files were not “traceable”.
The documents had been submitted to the chief minister to decide on the withdrawal of a petition by former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, seeking quashing of the Union government panel’s report indicting Hooda and senior officials for allegedly fabricating charges against Chaturvedi.
