Bureaucrat shifted to Ladakh amid dog row

New Delhi, May 26:
The IAS officer who used to walk his dog in a Delhi stadium has been transferred to Ladakh. The move came hours after report that the Government-run Thyagraj Stadium was being closed for sports activities earlier than usual so that the bureaucrat could walk his dog at the facility.
In an order, the Home Ministry said Sanjay Khirwar, a 1994-batch IAS officer, has been shifted to Ladakh and his wife to Arunachal Pradesh with immediate effect. According to official sources, the Home Ministry had sought a report from the Delhi Chief Secretary on the news report regarding the misuse of facilities at Thyagraj Stadium by Khirwar and his wife.
The chief secretary submitted a report to the MHA in the evening on the factual position, prompting the Ministry to order their transfer.
Sanjay Khirwar is currently posted as Principal Secretary (Revenue) in Delhi. (Agencies)
