Woman cop transferred within 24 hours of spat with Haryana minister Anil Vij

Fatehabad SP Sangeeta Kalia who on Friday had a spat with Haryana Minister Anil Vij was transferred on Saturday.

The official notification on the transfer orders are likely to be issued from Haryana's CM office soon.

Haryana Health and Sports Minister Anil Vij on Friday ordered a woman police officer to "get out" of a meeting. When she refused, he himself stormed out in a huff.

The outburst came after both were locked in an argument over liquor smuggling in Fatehabad district.

Anil Vij walked out of the meeting after Fatehabad district police chief Sangeeta Kalia, an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer whom he ordered to "get out", refused to leave. 

When she was yelled at, Kalia demanded to know "why" she needed to leave, and told him: "I am not leaving." 

The minister, who was attending a public grievances' committee meeting of which he is the chairman, had asked the officer what she was doing to curb liquor smuggling in areas bordering Punjab.
