Who Is IAS Rinku Dugga, Compulsorily Retired by Government?

Ms. Dugga and her husband, Sanjeev Khirwar, also a 1994-batch IAS officer of AGMUT cadre and posted in Ladakh, have been in the headlines for some time now

1994 batch IAS officer of AGMUT cadre, Ms. Rinku Dugga, 54, has been given compulsorily retirement by the Central Government. She was currently the Principal Secretary of Indigenous Affairs in Arunachal Pradesh.

Confirming the news, a senior central government official said that in view of Rinku Dugga’s track record, she has been given compulsory retirement. A notification related to this has also been issued.

Ms. Dugga and her husband, Sanjeev Khirwar, also a 1994-batch IAS officer of AGMUT cadre and posted in Ladakh, have been in the headlines for some time now. Both were transferred out of Delhi last year following a report in media that they emptied Tyagraj stadium in Delhi of athletes to walk their dog.

It was claimed that for the IAS couple to walk their dog in the stadium, the athletes and coaches etc. were removed from the stadium at 7 pm. Athletes and coaches were also harassed at the behest of Khirwar and Dugga. The couple used to walk the dog on the track built for athletes.

When this news broke out, the Central Government immediately transferred Sanjeev Khirwar and his wife Rinku Dugga out of Delhi.

Mr. Khirwar was sent to Ladakh, while Ms. Dugga was sent to Arunachal Pradesh. Then, Khirwar and Dugga had clarified that they used to go there only after the stadium was closed. That the dog was not left on the track and the talk of harassing players and coaches was completely baseless.

It is worth mentioning here that the government has the right to retire any government servant “if it is of the opinion that it is in the public interest to do so”.
