Meena is at present posted as additional district magistrate and zila panchayat chief executive officer in Umaria district.

Earlier, she was posted as sub-divisional magistrate in Rajnagar in Chhattarpur district, where she had got impounded sand-laden trucks of sand mafia Arjun Singh Bundela, who had then allegedly threatened her.

In a letter to Chief Secretary Basant Pratap Singh, Sonia Meena has mentioned the death threat issued to her and sought adequate security since she has to travel to Chhattarpur district to submit documents/evidence in court regarding the seizures.

Umaria district magistrate Abhishek Singh told the media on Sunday that security to the woman officer of the  IAS has been increased and adequate security will be provided to her during her Chhattarpur visits.
