Chhattisgarh Collector suspended, attached to State Secretariat after controversial video surfaces

  • After a video of Surajpur Collector IAS Ranbir Sharma slapping a youth for breaking lockdown laws surfaced on social media, the Chhattisgarh State Administration appointed him as a joint secretary in waiting to the state secretariat on Sunday.

  • During the lockout, the IAS officer apologized for punching a guy and tossing his phone on the deck, breaking Covid-19 safety norms.

  • The collector's apologies quickly spread across the internet after a video of him assaulting the man went viral on social media, drawing widespread criticism for his physical attack on the young man who said he was outed to care for his ailing grandmother.
