It’s just unbelievable that he is transferred again in less than 3 months again.
Is honesty the best Policy? No! Mr.Khemka is again punished for his honesty.
It is Reported that the bureaucrat had landed in trouble after asking a minister to return an officer’s car.
According to the recent report, it is also said that :
He stated that he was punished by the Congress government after he canceled the sale of 3.5 acres of land in Gurgaon near Delhi by Mr Vadra’s company to real estate giant DLF for Rs. 58 crore.
