Hassan Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri has been transferred just weeks before Mahamastakabhisheka celebrations in the district.

Sindhuri was overseeing arrangements for the upcoming celebrations at Shravanabelegola and the news of her transfer elicited a strong reaction from leaders of BJP and JD(S). She had taken over as DC of Hassan in July 2017 and becomes the latest civil officer to be transferred in less than a year’s time of duty in the state.

The Mahamastakabhisheka is an important Jain festival held once in twelve years at Shravanabelegola in Hassan district. It is set to take place from February 17-21. The BJP has alleged that the transfer has happened due to disagreements between the officer and the Chief Minister's office over the festival.

BJP State President, BS Yeddyurappa, called the transfer unceremonious and said that there was no place for honest offers in the Siddaramaiah government
