Uttar Pradesh policewoman Shrestha Thakur, who hit headlines last week for standing up to the local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders was transferred to Bahraich on July 1. Thakur, who was earlier posted at Syana circle in Bulandshahar, had arrested 5 BJP local leaders after they created ruckus on the road and stopped police officials from discharging their duties. The incident went viral after a video of Thakur retaliating against BJP workers surfaced on various social media platforms. She was transferred along with other deputy superintendents.

As per a report by Hindustan Times, Thakur’s transfer orders came a week after the incident took place and it is being said that the decision was taken following a meeting of delegation of 11 BJP MLAs and MP with chief minister Yogi Adityanath. The report also stated that the local leaders stressed that the UP government to take action against the cop. The report also said that BJP city president Mukesh Bhardwaj has accepted that the officer was transferred in order to keep the party workers morale high.

Watch this:

The entire row took place when BJP workers started protesting against police action taken against one of their leaders Pramod Kumar. The police had slapped Kumar with a fine of Rs 200 for not wearing helmet while riding his motorcycle. The video which went viral on social media last week shows Thakur being threatened by the BJP leaders who invoked the name of CM Adityanath. However, the policewoman asked the protesters to get a written order from the CM stating that BJP workers should be exempted from police checking and not to be charged even if they break traffic rules.

    Thats a Shame on Society that can't stand for the person who stood for Equal treatment. Such society that doesn't get involved in Democratic procedures and rules must continue to Suffer as Slaves of Politicians/People elected in power. MLAs wins to show they are Rajas and They can manhandle any Police officer irrespective of whether Police Officer is right or wrong.

      She admitted manhandling the person that was issued chalan claiming that he misbehaved with her and her colleague. When the complainants refuted her claims she asked for tapes. On camera she claimed that: i) she will manhandle again and ii) she will charge the protesting group "for misbehaving with her/police." The complainants also claimed that police was targeting workers from a particular party to which she had no answer !!! Police raj must end !!!!!
