Even as people continue to laud Gal Gadot and her stellar performance in and as Wonder Woman, closer home there is a woman police officer who is increasingly becoming popular for more or less the same reasons. A video showing men claiming to be Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) workers arguing with a woman police officer identified as Circle Offcer (CO) Shrestha Thakur and bullying her is now going viral.

According to a report by The Huffington Post, the police imposed challan on a BJP district panchayat worker Pramod Lodhi, in Bulandshahr after they found out he wasn’t carrying all the requisite documents of his bike. When other BJP leaders got to know about the incident, they created a ruckus, claiming that their party leaders were being specifically targetted. This is when Thakur intervened and stood tall and mighty against the raging party workers.

A calm and composed seeming Sharma is seen saying to the BJP workers to get it written from the Chief Minister that the police shouldn’t check their vehicles and then they won’t. The unrelenting workers continued to argue and even accused the officials of taking bribe. ALSO READ | This ‘single lady’s’ Facebook post on not being allowed to stay in Hyderabad hotel goes viral

        She will soon be paying a heavy price for her bravado. That is the tragedy of being a fearless officer.

          Hats off to you, Ms. Thakur! You are a true symbol of fearless commitment to one's resposibility. Many jobless and ill-principled people accompany Politicians who hardly have the guts to walk alone. You were seen standing alone with courage, truth and belief in your principles, surrounded by a gang which wanted to prove you wrong. You are the true daughter of india because you have proved to our nation that standing by priciples is induan rather than stooping down to mob-pressures! I hope you get a mention as an example in "man ki baat"!

            As a district officer facing similar politicians more than four decades back I had found it not difficult to stand up to them.We had good politicians at the top then. It is far more difficult now. This young officer has shown exceptional courage. I hope the CM of UP will stand by her and warn off such MLA's. In any event the video was heartening.

                Superb response from the cop. These goons who exploit BJP`s name for their nefarious activities should be taught a firm lesson.

                  well done, Ms. Thakur - we need more people like you. Other police officers will hopefully emulate your behaviour and uphold law and order without getting coerced into going along with the crowd.
