Almost 20 days of the Congress complaint against BJP candidate Sunita Duggal’s husband, IPS officer Rajesh Duggal, the Election Commission Monday ordered transfer of the officer out of Sirsa and Hisar parliamentary constituencies immediately.
A former IRS officer Sunita Duggal has been fielded against Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar from Sirsa constituency.

After a probe, the state election authorities, about ten days back, had recommended action against Duggal.
