Sangeeta was among nine IPS officers who were transferred today by the Haryana government after the Jat quota agitation.

Sangeeta Rani was appointed Superintendent of Police, Rewari replacing Balwan Singh, who will be DCP, West Gurgaon, an official spokesman said here.

Sangeeta, the 2010-batch-IPS officer was earlier posted as Commandant 4th India Reserve Battalion (IRB) at Manesar, Gurgaon.

As the then SP of Fatehabad district, she was shunted out by BJP government, a day after she was allegedly involved in a spat with Vij.

She had refused to leave meeting of the District Grievances and Public Relations Committee on being asked to “get out” by the Health minister at Fatehabad on November 27 last year.

Vij was irked with her response to a query on illicit liquor trade in the area. The minister then had stormed out of a meeting after the police officer had refused to follow his order to leave the venue following heated exchanges between them. The video of their spat had also gone viral on social media.
