Her batchmate, IAS D. K. Ravi fell in love and proposed to her for marriage, but she refused as she was already married. After getting fallen apart, he committed suicide on 16 March 2015.

In 2017, when Rohini was posted as a District Collector Hassan District, the District was in the 31st place in the SSLC (Secondary School Leaving Certificate) results. After two years in 2019, the District stood first. This all happened due to Rohini’s importance to reform the education system. She also took on the Sand mafia, which was very prevalent in Hassan. She conducted raids and took strict actions against culprits. In 2018, she was transferred from Hassan District just after seven months of service as a Hassan DC.
