The government has reportedly taken the decision to compulsorily retire Rinku Dugga, an IAS officer serving in the Arunachal Pradesh government, according to sources.
Rinku Dugga, a 1994-batch AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory) cadre officer, held the position of Principal Secretary, Indigenous Affairs in Arunachal Pradesh.
She, along with her husband Sanjeev Khirwar, who is also a 1994-batch IAS officer currently posted in Ladakh, were relocated out of Delhi last year in response to a newspaper report alleging that they cleared a stadium of athletes to walk their dog.
Dugga’s compulsory retirement was initiated under the Fundamental Rules (FR) 56(j), Rule 48 of the Central Civil Services (CCS) Pension Rules, 1972, after a review of her service history, as per the sources.
The government retains the authority to retire any government servant when it deems it to be in the public interest to do so, as per the sources.
