Chandigarh: Over a month after Haryana Bharatiya Janata Party chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas Barala was arrested for stalking Varnika Kundu, daughter of a senior Haryana-cadre IAS officer VS Kundu, the state government yesterday transferred the bureaucrat.

Kundu, who was looking after the state's tourism department, has been posted as Additional Chief Secretary, Science and Technology Department.

He will keep looking after State University of Performing and Visual Arts, Rohtak, as its Vice-Chancellor.

When contacted by The Indian Express, Kundu said, "It's up to the government where it deputes me keeping in view my capabilities. I don't have any problem in it. I never tried to stop my transfer order.' Notably, the development came hours after a Chandigarh court dismissed bail application of Vikash Barala on Tuesday.
