Chandigarh, 13 September(Wishav Warta): The Haryana government on Tuesday shifted additional chief secretary (tourism) Virender Kundu as ACS (science and technology), a relatively low-key department. The move has fuelled speculations that the transfer could be result of Kundu standing up against Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala, whose son allegedly stalked Kundu’s daughter Varnika in Chandigarh recently.

Vikas Barala, the 23-year-old son of Subhash Barala, and his friend Ashish Kumar, 27, were arrested for stalking Varnika, who is a city-based DJ.

Reacting to Kundu’s transfer, senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted that the officer has been “punished for standing up to BJP in quest for justice for his daughter, Varnika Kundu?”
