The state government has posted another IAS officer, Pradeep Kasni, to be secretary-archives and director general-archives during the election duty of Ashok Khemka.

However, Khemka, who is presently on leave, has claimed that he has not been assigned any election duty by the Election Commission of India.

Government's move over Khemka's post comes even as it is preparing at least four chargesheets against him. The government is planning to impose major penalty against him, which could even lead to dismissal from service.

Khemka has been transferred 43 times in his career as an IAS officer spanning over 21 years.

Khemka had, in October last year, cancelled the mutation of Rs 58-crore land deal between Robert Vadra's company, M/s Sky Light Hospitality, with realty giant DLF. He had claimed other major wrong-doings by the government in multi-million rupee land deals across Haryana.
