Parking row: Judge takes action against IAS officers

Haryana IAS officer Sangeeta Tetarwal, who was earlier Ganaur sub-divisional magistrate (SDM), had filed a police complaint in the first week of June against two judicial officers accusing them of obstructing her official vehicle.

 
Now, it has emerged that the then Sonepat sessions Judge DS Sheoran had inquired into the matter and had recommended for initiating contempt proceedings against Tetarwal and then Sonepat DC Rajiv Rattan for making false complaint.
 
On the one hand, replying to session’s judge report, Rattan, who is posted as National Health Mission (NHM) director, said, “I do not want to comment on it. When the report comes, I will reply to it in writing.”
 
On the other hand, Tetarwal, who is now Dabwali SDM, said, “I was the complainant and unfortunately I was never heard. I did not have any information about this inquiry.” She was praised for her role during the February Jat agitation in Prakash Singh Committee Report.
 
Rattan had forwarded Tetarwal’s complaint to the inspecting judge concerned of the Punjab and Haryana high court on January 22. Rattan had also complained about the attachment of Tetarwal’s car in an execution case.
