He was also charge-sheeted by the Haryana government on various counts. As reported by indiatoday.com, in the charge-sheet it was alleged that the IAS officer went beyond his jurisdiction to cancel the land deals between DLF and Vadra. The charge-sheet had also stated that Khemka tried to defame Vadra.
After the announcement of his deputation, a number of eminent personalities took to twitter to share their happiness on how at last the honest officer has been given what he deserves. His post is yet to be decided.
