New Delhi: IPS officer Damayanti Sen, who ruffled a few feathers including that of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over the infamous Park Street rape case in February, was shunted out from the city on Wednesday.

In what is being seen as a low-profile posting, she was transferred as DIG, Training, of Barrackpore Police Training School.

Sen, as Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, had reportedly "defied" Mamata Banerjee by backing the Park Street rape victim by believing her account of rape.

Mamata had initially called the rape victim's account a fabricated report, even an attempt to malign her government, for which the chief minister drew flak from the media and society alike.

The main accused in the horrific rape case is still at large.

Sen's investigation results also went against the Kolkata Police Commissioner RK Pachnanda's initial brief which echoed Banerjee's comment and hinted at media conspiracy behind the incident.

The decision to remove Sen was primarily taken at the police establishment board meeting held at Writers' Buildings on Tuesday afternoon but many see it as a punishment posting for Sen.

The meeting took the decision to reshuffle the posts of about 60 IPS officers across West Bengal. The Chief Minister, also the Home Minister of the state, gave her assent on Wednesday afternoon.
