IPS officer Rajesh Hingankar transferred from Dhar, case against Qazi was registered in his tenure

Rajesh Hingankar, an officer of Indian Police Service (IPS), has been shifted from Dhar. He has been posted as SP, Satna.

Hingankar was district police chief in Dhar, when Shahar Qazi was booked for sedition. This was an unusual case and the issue was raised in Assembly.

It was a questionable decision of the local administration. The reason was that even if slogans were raised during a rally, instead of booking those youth, the case against Qazi was unprecedented.

It showed deep bias. While right-wing groups have taken out processions with swords and have wielded weapons public, no case is registered.

Clearly, it was either unusual appeasement of BJP's core constituency or right-wing sympathies within administration. It is not clear who dared to take action against the Shahar Qazi, a religious post.

Home minister Babulal Gaur said that he would look into it, and would take corrective measures. In all, 12 IPS officers have been transferred in the latest round of administrative reshuffle in MP.
