Superintendent of Police Sangeeta Kalia is likely to be sent to Bhondsi Jail in Gurgaon, sources add.
Yesterday, the minister had stormed out of a meeting of the District Grievances and Public Relations Committee after the police officer refused to follow his order to leave. The video of their exchange has gone viral.
During the meeting, Mr Anil Vij had reportedly questioned Ms #Sangeetakalia about the steps taken by the police to check the illegal sale of liquor in the district. The officer replied that as many as 2,500 cases were registered under the Excise Act in the last 10 months, which was a “record”. However, dissatisfied with her response, the minister said the police wasn’t doing enough.
He then went a step further and accused the police of being hand in glove with liquor mafia. In response, Ms #Sangeetakalia blamed the government for issuing licenses for sale of alcohol.
Now enraged, the minister asked Ms Kalia to leave the meeting room, but the officer refused to do so. Immediately, the minister himself walked out of the room. All BJP workers and committee members followed suit.
“I cannot continue to chair the District Grievance Committee in the presence of the officer, I will take up the matter with chief minister and the DGP,” Mr #AnilVij had told NDTV.
The officer, refusing to comment on the incident, said everything happened before media and that she would not like to add anything further.
