UP woman cop who stood up against BJP leaders transferred for party’s pride
Lucknow: Days after Shreshtha Thakur, a police officer in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh, set an example by standing up to errant BJP leaders, even sending 5 of them to jail, has been transferred by the state administration.
Last month a viral video footage captured Circle Officer Thakur confronting an angry mob of BJP workers who had gathered after a district-level party worker was issued a challan — a penalty slip — for not having appropriate documentation for his vehicle.
The cop was transferred a week after the incident following a meeting of a delegation of the party’s 11 MLAs and MP with the chief minister over the issue. The local leaders had linked it with their pride and pressed the high command to initiate action against Thakur.
