I get salary of Rs 80k without work: IPS officer Thakur

Thakur has requested the UP government to end his suspension and to reinstate him in service.

In his letter sent on Wednesday to principal secretary home, Thakur said that after getting the charge sheet on 13 July, he submitted his reply on 16 July, calling all the charges baseless. On 20 July, he also sought to be heard in person by UP chief minister as the decision-making authority.

Thakur said when the State government only recently reinstated NRHM accused Pradeep Yadav and Allahabad commissioner B K Singh and Fatehpur DM Rakesh Kumar, suspended for illegal mining, given his charges he has all the rights to get reinstated.
