Woman IAS Officer Slaps Girl Child For Scratching Her Car

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked the Punjab chief secretary to order an inquiry into the incident where senior IAS officer Sujata Dass had beaten up a three-year-old girl in full public view, while reacting to a minor scratch on her Honda City car in Sector 38 (West) market on February 10.

Sujata, a 1978-batch IAS officer, is posted as Secretary of Vigilance Inquiries. Garima, a nursery student at Delhi Public School in Sector 40, was returning home at Dadumajra village in an autorickshaw, when the driver got off leaving the ignition on.

In the meantime, Sujata parked her car (CH-01-AB-5120) next to the autorickshaw and Garima — who was fiddling with the steering — accidentally pulled the gear-lever. The autorickshaw banged into the rear door of the Honda City. Following this, an agitated Sujata pulled Garima out and slapped her a number of times.

Garima's father reached the police station to lodge a complaint but a compromise was struck between the two parties as Dass apologised.

However, a city-based NGO filed a complaint against the officer with NCPCR.

'A public servant cannot indulge in such incidents. This is a clear violation of the code of conduct and we would take an appropriate action. We have also sent a notice to Punjab government and sought a reply from them,' said a senior official of NCPCR.
