IPS officer D Roopa, Karnataka’s first woman Home Secretary, has been transferred to Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation as its managing director.

The transfer comes amid her public spat with another IPS officer Hemant Nimbalkar who has also been transferred. Nimbalkar was the additional commissioner (administration) in Bengaluru before being transferred to the internal security department.

According to Hindustan Times, the officers locked horns after D Roopa accused Nimbaklar of irregularities in the tender process of Rs 619 crore Bengaluru safe City project under the Nirbhaya scheme. Nimbaklar, on the other hand, accused D Roopa of interfering with the tender process without jurisdiction.

Roopa was born in Davanagere and cleared her UPSC with AIR 43 in 2000. She was awarded the President’s Police Medal in 2016 and then again in 2017. She has been transferred over 40 times in 20 years.
