S Kavitha, a special officer for the Harur Sugar Mill in Dharmapuri is in trouble after she was caught on camera playing candy-crush on her smartphone during a farmers' grievance redressal meet on Friday. 

What's surprising is that she was sitting right next to the district collector while she crushed the digital candies away using her thumb. The district administration has asked for an explanation from the DRO rank officer after television channels played the video.

District Collector K Vivekanandan told The New Indian Express, "We are enquiring about it. As she is of DRO rank, we cannot take direct action against her. We asked her for an explanation within 10 days. Once we get it, we will forward it to the Public Department, as they only can take action. We have already informed the department.”
