Millennium Post

Khemka transferred again

Senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who had ordered a scrutiny of land deals of United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra last year, was Thursday shunted by the Haryana government to an inconsequential post.

Khemka, presently managing director of the Haryana Seeds Development Corporation (HSDC), will now be posted as the secretary of Haryana Archives, which is responsible for preserving public and private records in the state.

Khemka has been transferred almost 45 times in his two-decade-long career as an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer.

He had hit national headlines October last year when he controversially cancelled a mutation of a multi-crore-rupee land deal between Vadra's company, Sky Light Hospitality, and realty giant DLF. The officer had even ordered a probe into all land deals done by Vadra.
