Lucknow: Senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur on Saturday filed an FIR against Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav after he alleged that the senior party leader had threatened him.“I felt I should stand up for myself so I filed a complaint against Mulayam Singh Yadav,” Thakur was quoted by a national news agency.
Senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur had on Friday claimed that Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has threatened him with serious consequences if he does not mend his ways, the PTI had reported. Thakur, an IG-rank officer, who has been assisting his wife and RTI activist Nutan Thakur in raising social issues, released an audio tape purportedly containing the voice of the SP chief.
Reacting to the allegation, senior SP leader CP Rai said, “I have not heard the audio but such an allegation appears to be doctored. He (Mulayam) is such a senior leader. I know him for past 30 years… He can never threaten anyone.”
