IAS officer Sanjeev Khirwar and his wife Rinku Dugga, who stirred up controversy for misusing the facilities at the capital’s Thyagraj Stadium, have now been transferred to Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh, respectively.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has transferred the Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram, and Union Territory (AGMUT) cadre to these places after sparking a row for allegedly walking their dog at the stadium by forcing athletes to finish their practice as usual.

MHA in an order said 1994 batch IAS officer Sanjeev Khirwar is shifted to Ladakh and his wife to Arunachal Pradesh with immediate effect. According to a report, the home ministry had requested a report from the Delhi Chief Secretary on a statement about Khirwar and his wife exploiting amenities at Thyagraj Stadium.

The officials said the chief secretary presented the MHA with a report on the facts, causing the ministry to order their transfer. According to the sources, suitable action would be taken in response to the report.

According to recent media reports, athletes who use the stadium are compelled to leave early in the evening when Khirwar arrives to walk his dog in the stadium. Some athletes who train at the facility have claimed that they are forced to leave the stadium in time for Khirwar and his dog to arrive.

The coach said we used to train till 8-8.30 pm under lights earlier. But now, we are asked to leave the ground by 7 pm so that the officer can walk his dog on the ground. Our training and practice routine has been disrupted. When confronted, the officer denied any such allegation but admitted to sometimes walking his dog but never on a regular basis.

Soon after the controversy arose, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ordered that all Delhi government-run sports facilities, including the Thaygraj stadium, be available to athletes until 10 pm.

The centrally placed sporting complex, which was built for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, is a multi-discipline facility that attracts national and state athletes and footballers.

The Enforcement Directorate told the court on Thursday that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, arrested in liquor policy case, is taking high sugar intake like mangoes and sweets every day deliberately in spite of suffering from type 2 diabetes so that he can create grounds for medical bail. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) made the claim before special judge for ED and CBI cases, Kaveri Baweja, who gave directions to the Tihar jail authorities to file a report in the matter which should also include Kejriwal’s diet chart.

Kejriwal had moved court and also sought permission to consult his regular doctor via video conference because his sugar levels were fluctuating. The judge directed the authorities concerned to file the report by tomorrow, when the court will take up the matter again.

 Advocate Vivek Jain, counsel for Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal responded to the ED’s argument and said this is an issue made by Enforcement Directorate so that home-cooked food should also be stopped. He said this would have a major impact on his health. Advocate Jain added that whatever Kejriwal is eating is as per his doctors prescribed dietary chart. He said the matter is sub judice and they do not have anything to say.

Advocate Vivek Jain objected to the Enforcement Directorate’s submission and said that the agency is making these allegations only for the media. He said that some toffee and other things are given to diabetic patients so that they can maintain their sugar levels. Jain added that Kejriwal is withdrawing his application and will file a better one later.

AAP minister Atishi Marlena said that Arvind Kejriwal had fallen ill and lost about 4.5 kg since his arrest on March 21. She addressed a press conference where the AAP leader said, Arvind Kejriwal is a severe diabetes patient but he never lets his health issue come as the way of his in the service to the nation.

West Bengal governor CV Ananda Bose has been warned by the Election Commission of India (ECI) not to visit Cooch Behar on April 18 and 19, since the first phase of the Lok Sabha polls will begin with a silence period on Wednesday evening.

According to those familiar with the situation in the EC, the poll body informed the governor’s office that no local program could be planned for the governor on April 19 due to the Model Code of Conduct and the election day.

The poll body added that if they had to provide local security cover for this unexpected proposed visit without a imminently known requirement, the tour would be a diversion because the district administration and police force will be completely occupied with election management on April 18 and 19.

As a result, under Section 126 of the Representation of People Act, campaigning is prohibited in Cooch Behar starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

In order to ensure a free and fair election process, the poll board has asked all district election officers and district police chiefs to make sure that all prominent individuals, campaigners, and political workers who are not local voters leave the polling area once the silence period begins.

The seven phases of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will take place between April to June. Polls will be conducted in seven phases: the first on April 19 and the seventh on June 1. On June 4, the results will be announced.
