Sonia Narang will now serve NIA

Sonia Narang, DIG (CID), will be out of Karnataka for a period of four years as the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) accepted her request for a Central government assignment.



The MHA issued an order attaching her to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The state government will soon receive a communication from the MHA and Narang is expected to complete a few formalities.

She is likely to report for duty in New Delhi towards May-end and her posting will be decided later.

Sonia Narang, who is currently heading the team which is investigating II PU Chemistry question paper leak racket, volunteered for the Central government assignment in January this year.

Narang approached the MHA through the state government and her request was accepted.
Sonia Narang, considered to be one of the toughest and honest officers, hogged the limelight after she submitted a report to the Lokayukta registrar in May 2015 highlighting corruption in the institution which led to a series of arrests of some insiders, including the then Lokayukta Justice Bhaskar Rao’s son Y Ashwin.

Narang’s act even resulted in the resignation of Justice Bhaskar Rao. She was recently promoted and posted as DIG (CID) and the II PU Chemistry question paper leak scam came to light.

The IPS cadre in every state opts for Central government assignments for better
exposure and career development. The Central government ropes in many IPS officers from every state for various central government agencies.
