Lady IAS slaps 4 yr.old girl,faces ire of child rights panel

IAS officer slapped child over scratch to car


A woman Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer here has been booked by the child rights panel for slapping a four-year-old girl who had accidentally caused an autorickshaw to scratch her car, officials said here on Wednesday.

Sujata Dass, a 1978-batch Punjab-cadre IAS officer who is posted as secretary, vigilance inquiries, Punjab, has been booked by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR). She had slapped the child, Garima, who is a nursery student, in full public view.

Garima was returning from school in an autorickshaw when the incident took place. The autorickshaw driver stopped the vehicle in the Sector 38 market to drop a child and stepped out with the ignition on.

In the meantime Dass, who stays here in Sector 39, reached there in her official Honda City car. Garima accidentally pulled the gear lever and the autorickshaw banged the rear door of the car. Infuriated, Dass came out and thrashed the child.

Following this, Garima's father reached the police station to lodge a complaint but a compromise was struck between the two parties as Dass apologised.

Garima is a nursery student at Delhi Public school in Sector 40 here.

However, a city-based NGO filed a complaint against the officer with NCPCR.

"A public servant cannot indulge in such incidents. This is a clear violation of the code of conduct and we would take an appropriate action. We have also sent a notice to Punjab government and sought a reply from them," said a senior official of NCPCR.

Even if Kiran Sir has not known her and her conduct, the very fact that she dared to slap a child goes against her.  It violalates child rights in the worst possible form,  and that too from a civil servant.

Our glorious Article 311 of Constitution will protect her, including every civil servant in this country. If any real accountability and humanity from public servants is desired, Article 311 needs to be thrown into the dustbin. Doctrine of "pleasure" has no place in a truly free and democratic society.

This news is not surprising to me atleast!


I have personally encountered during my own matrimonial legal issues,women who are in a powerful position,misusing their power to flout all laws,rules and regulations, just to favour the opposite party,while the weak/not so rich person suffers silently.


Atleast in this case,this officer has been exposed through the media.


Some are never exposed also.Think about how the victims feel under those circumstances.

Protectors have become biggest violators and it is amazing that they feel proud to commit such act/crime.




"Some are never exposed also.Think about how the victims feel under those circumstances."

Life is all about perfection and perception ,some do mistake and thay eaisly escaped from the situation and for that reason  good person have to suffer.
