Haryana Health and Sports Minister Anil Vij walked out of a meeting after a heated argument with a woman police officer, said reports.

The minister, who was presiding over a public grievances' committee meeting, was arguing with the Fatehabad district police chief Sangeeta Kalia over liquor smuggling in the district.

When Vij asked SP Kalia about the measures being taken by the police to curb liquor smuggling in the district, she said that they are taking action.

"We are taking action. We have registered over 2,500 cases. Many of these people come out on bail and indulge in smuggling again," IANS quoted Kalia as saying.

Later, the minister alleged that the smuggling was conducted with police patronage. But when SP Kalia objected to this, the infuriated minister asked her to "get out".

However, Kalia decided to stay put and said she is not leaving. Following this, Vij stormed out of the meeting in fury and said he would not come to Fatehabad as long as Kalia was stationed there.

"Her attitude is not good. I had taken up the matter with her two or three times but her approach was very casual," Vij told the media.

Though Deputy Commissioner NK Solanki tried, who was also present at the meeting, reportedly tried to stop the minister from leaving, it was in vain.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that he is yet to receive a report on the matter and that he will act accordingly.
