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.
He who is the sub-divisional magistrate of Ramanujganj in Balrampur district, showed no remorse even after social media criticized him for his uncivil manners.
For his act of arrogant and insolent, angry netizens rechristened the IAS as “India’s Arrogant Service”.
