UP police officer Shrestha Thakur, who waded into controversy after a row with a local BJP leader in Bulandshahr recently, was among 244 PPS officers transferred by the state government. The woman police officer, who was posted as deputy SP in Bulandshahr, has been transferred to Bahraich as deputy SP Bahraich, UP police spokesperson said.

Thakur said she had to pay for doing her duty honestly. She had hogged the newspaper headlines when she penalised a BJP leader in Bulandshahr for violating rules. The video of her heated argument with BJP’s Syana city president Mukesh Bhardwaj had gone viral on social media.

Bhardwaj had reached the spot allegedly after the police slapped a fine on BJP worker Pramod Kumar for driving a motorcycle “without any documents, number plate and helmet” on June 22. The wordy duel between Thakur and Bhardwaj started after the police officer slapped a fine on Pramod who then called the local BJP office-bearers including Bhardwaj.

In the video, Thakur was seen telling the BJP leader that she would ask police officials not to check any vehicles if he got a letter from chief minister asking her to do so.

    Mob rule in India is a significant cause of lawlessness, hindrance to development, and image of India. All political parties, including BJP need these mob popped Gundas to be elected to the state assembly and parliament. that is what causing the problem. Unless this is not reduced, India cannot develop. These are also the people who end up voting for these Gundas.

        If police officer Shrestha Thakur has been transferred n doing her duty honestly then a time will come very soon wherein we will not find honesty in the forces.
