Chandigarh, Nov Health Minister Anil Vij28: The Haryana government on Saturday ordered the transfer of IPS officer Sangeeta Kalia who was involved in an ugly spat with Health and Sports Minister .
“Sangeeta Rani, Superintendent of Police, Fatehabad, has been posted as Commandant 4th IRB (India Reserve Battalion), Manesar, relieving Vikas Dhankar of the additional charge,” a state government spokesman said.

Vij and Kalia were involved in an unsavoury spat during a meeting in Fatehabad on Friday over the issue of police not curbing liquor smuggling in the district.

The minister snubbed the woman IPS officer and told her to “get out” of the meeting in the presence to several officers and others present there. However, the woman police officer stood her ground and refused to go out.
