UP police rejects IPS officer Amitabh Thakur’s plea for FIR against Mulayam

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh police has rejected suspended IPS officer Amitabh Thakur’s plea for an FIR against SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for allegedly threatening him on phone with dire consequences, saying the allegations have not been substantiated.

Following this, Thakur today said he would now move the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Court for justice.

A letter written by Inspector of Hazratganj police station Vijay Mal Singh Yadav dated July 17 states that the complaint presented by Thakur about Mulayam was enquired into following which it was found that the allegations have not been substantiated, hence it was being rejected.

The letter was handed over to Thakur’s wife Nutan at their residence last evening.

The IG-rank officer completely disagreed with the enquiry conducted by police into the purported phone call and said the letter did not mention any reasons for the conclusion it came to.

The letter “seems to have been drawn superficially, quite visibly under pressure,” he said.

After no FIR was registered by the Hazratganj police on July 11, Thakur had sent an application to SSP Lucknow on July 22.

In his application to the SSP, Thakur had said Mulayam’s statements were “definitely criminal intimidation”, which is a cognizable offence and hence he had sought FIR.

The Uttar Pradesh government suspended Thakur on July 13, hours after he approached the Union Home Ministry seeking a CBI probe into the rape case slapped against him.

Thakur, who has ever since been locked in a tussle with the state government, was served a 200-page charge sheet and a vigilance inquiry was initiated against him.

Thakur had stirred a political storm by releasing the text and audio of the purported phone conversation with Mulayam.
