New Delhi: In Chhattisgarh, a young IAS officer (2013-batch) faced social media outrage after a photograph showed him standing and talking to a hospitalized child’s mother with his left foot resting on the steel rail of the hospital bed.

The incident happened when Dr Jagdish Sonkar visited a government hospital for a routine inspection and interacted with mothers of malnourished children being treated there. The IAS officer holds a medical degree.
