Rohini was transferred from the post of Commissioner for Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments. Roopa has been transferred out of her post of Managing Director of Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation.

Roopa’s husband, Munish Moudgil, was also transferred from the Department of Survey, Settlement and Land Records where he was serving as the commissioner. He has now been posted as Principal Secretary, Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR).

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday night said, the Chief Secretary has given direction to both officials verbally and in writing, to abide by All India Services Conduct Rules, and they have agreed to it. “I expect them to follow the rules”, he had said.

The row between the two officials started after Roopa leveled 19 allegations against Sindhuri last Saturday. On Sunday, she shared seven photos of the IAS officer, accusing her of sharing them with male colleagues. Sindhuri alleged that Roopa was making such comments against her out of personal hatred. She added that Roopa was behaving as if she had lost her mental balance.

It started after photographs emerged of Rohini Sindhuri and JD(S) MLA from Mysuru’s KR Nagara, Sa Ra Mahesh, sitting together with another person, purported to be another IAS officer, in a restaurant.

An advisory issued by DPAR to Roopa stated that though there was an appropriate forum to raise allegations and grievances, the officer had expressed them directly to the media. suggested that the officers could have avoided airing their grievances publicly, and directed them to refrain from approaching the media further and observe the conduct rules. A similar direction was issued to Rohini as well.
