Suspended IPS officer’s activist-wife claims FIR against Mulayam

Lucknow: High drama was today witnessed in front of Hazratganj police station in the heart of the city when suspended IPS officer Amitabh Thakur staged a day-long sit-in demonstration in connection with the alleged threat to him by SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Thakur went to Hazratganj police station at 11 AM and sat there for the entire day for a copy of the FIR against the SP supremo, which, Thakur’s RTI activist wife Nutan, claimed had been filed after the UP government assured the Allahabad High Court that it would forthwith comply with the order of a local CJM court to register an FIR.

Nutan said in a statement later that City SP Rajeev Mahrotra told her husband that a “secret report” has been sent to the Court.

No senior police official was immediately forthcoming on the issue of FIR.

She said even after the FIR its copy was not given to Amitabh and was told that he will get its copy from the Court.

Following this, Amitabh went to the DGP office and met acting DGP B P Singh to complain against it.

Yesterday in the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court, UP government had assured the bench of Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice S N Shukla that if the FIR has not been registered so far, it would be done forthwith.

Nutan claimed FIR No 562/2015 under section 506 (intimidation) of IPC has been registered against Mulayam for the alleged phone threat to the IPS officer on July 10, in compliance of the order passed on 14 September by the CJM Lucknow Som Prabha Mishra.

She also claimed that as per her information the FIR had been registered on September 24.
