Will continue fight against Mulayam Singh Yadav: IPS Amitabh Thakur
The opposition slammed the action as an 'act of revenge' by the ruling party
Lucknow: A day after his suspension, a combative senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur, who is locked in a tussle with SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, on Tuesday said he would continue his fight even as the opposition slammed the action as an “act of revenge” by the ruling party.
In a related development, the woman who lodged an FIR against Thakur alleging rape, hours after he lodged a complaint against Yadav for threatening him, recorded her statement before a magistrate.
Thakur, an IG-rank officer, was suspended on late Monday night by the Uttar Pradesh government on prima facie charges of dereliction of duty, indiscipline, arbitrariness, adopting an anti-establishment approach and flouting high court orders. “I will hand over the original tape to the police and see what action they take,” Thakur said.
