Andhra Pradesh: Woman officer throws sand at senior, alleges harassment | Visakhapatnam News


VISAKHAPATNAM: Ego clash between two senior officials of the endowments department took a strange turn on Thursday when one of them threw sand at the other in the presence of several officials in the latter’s chamber. Assistant commissioner K Santhi, who committed the throwing act, blamed deputy commissioner P Vardhan of harassing her.
“I recovered many encroached properties of the endowments department in the past one and a half years. Still, he has been insulting me in front of officials. I was vexed with his harassment and even thought of committing suicide,” the mother of two kids said, adding that she will complain to the higher officials.
Vardhan said the sand-throwing act was nothing less than a physical attack on him. I will lodge a complaint with the authorities concerned against this indisplined act,” he said.
Interestingly, both officers belong to Telangana. Santhi was posted here last year, while Vardhan got transferred a couple of months ago. He is also the inquiry committee officer who is probing the irregularities in Mansas trust and Simhachalam lands and recently submitted his report to the government. Santhi has a good record in recovering various temple properties and endowment lands in the district in the last one year.
Sources said Vardhan suspended an inspector of temples, Srinivasa Raju, on July 19 on irregularities charges. Raju works under Santhi. Later, a Visakha division inspector of the department, who is reportedly close to Vardhan, was suspended by the assistant commissioner, which may have led to the clash.
