The UP IPS officer Amitabh Thakur has been suspected for violating ‘service rules’ days after he released the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s threatening call to him.
In an audio tape released by Thakur, the former UP chief minister was heard threatening him with dire consequences if ‘he didn’t mend his ways.”
Both Thakur and his wife Nutan were in Delhi on Monday to meet the union home minister Rajnath Singh requesting CBI’s intervention in his case.
Thakur had told reporters, “Mulayam Singh Yadav had threatened me with dire consequences. So, today I have met the Additional Secretary and sought security for me and my wife by central forces,” he told reporters outside the North Block, housing the MHA.”
Nutan, later told jantakareporter.com that the SP government had been harassing her family because her husband decided to expose the involvement of a cabinet minister in the state government, Gayatri Prasad Prajapati, in mining corruption.
A day after Thakur had released the tape, he along with his wife were booked in rape charges. A lady from Ghaziabad had filed an FIR pressing rape charges against the IPS officer and his lawyer activist wife.
UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is also Mulayam’s son, had justified his father’s action.
He had told reporters in Farrukhabad, ” “When Mulayam Singh Yadav can scold the chief minister, there is nothing wrong in his scolding an official.”
Both Thakur and his wife deny rape charges against them.
