After a video of UP policewoman Shrestha Thakur standing up to BJP workers went viral last week, there was much applause for the lady cop’s bravado and sense of duty. But things took an expected turn as reports of DSP Thakur’s transfer – along with a few other deputy superintendents – to Bahraich district started doing the rounds.

In what seems to be a confirmation of those reports, Thakur took to her Facebook account on Sunday (July 2) to say that she is happy about the tranfer and sees it “as a reward for my good work”. Giving the post a poetic turn, she wrote, “Jahaan bhi jayega, roshni lutaega. Kisi chirag ka apna makaan nai hota (Wherever it is kept, it will spread its light; a lamp does not have a home of its own).”

She went on to write, “Got transfer to bhraich, it’s nepal border, don’t worry my friends I am happy ..I accept it as a reward for my good work. .u all are invited to bahraich”.

This positive spirit is widely being appreciated by those who have admired her for standing up to the BKP workers, in Bulandshahar district, and for sending five of them to jail for ‘obstruction of duty’.

Thakur’s transfer as well as her Facebook post is creating a lot of buzz on social media. While many have taken to Twitter to express their support of her stand and expressing disappointment at her being transferred, others have responded to her post, wishing her luck for the police officer’s next stint.

            Shrestra, to fight for truth is a very courageous step that a miniscule Indians can take, you are truly a rare lamp rest all is trash. The revolution to stand firm n upright for truth has begun from women IAS n IPS officers of UP, the men officers have become slaves of the politicians. Jai Surge, Jai Kali, jai Hind Shershtha...
