The Sialkot Assistant Commissioner Sonia Sadaf has been transferred by the Punjab government and posted at Pind Dadan Khan (Jhelum district) with immediate effect.
The transfer occurred a month after the derogatory treatment meted out to her by Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan.
While visiting the Ramazan Bazaar near Jinnah Stadium on May 2, the SACM had humiliated Sonia Sadaf and apparently last ostensibly over the assistant commissioner’s failure to receive Ms Awan.
A video of the special assistant humiliating the officer went viral on social media.
Sources told TTI that the AC’s transfer from Sialkot was the result of Ms Awan’s annoyance with the officer after this incident.
They said Ms Awan also expressed her displeasure overseeing substandard fruits on sale and also took notice of an old woman’s complaint about the unavailability of sugar there.
She yelled at the officer that it was her duty to check everything happening over there and this was what she was paid for.
AC Sonia Sadaf did not respond to the calls by our correspondent for her version.
