A video purportedly showing him directing cops to “crack the heads” of anybody trying to cross the barricades during a protest by farmers on August 28 had gone viral.

Sinha has been posted as Additional Secretary, Citizen Resources Information Department (CRID). He was among 19 IAS officers and one HCS officer transferred today.

Since the lathicharge on farmers in Karnal, the Congress has been demanding a judicial probe. It has already moved the National Human Rights Commission seeking suspension of the officer who ordered the police action.

While CM Manohar Lal Khattar only objected to the choice of words used by the officer, the Chief Secretary has sought a detailed report over the matter.
