Woman cop who stood up against BJP leaders and fined them gets transferred

The fiery Uttar Pradesh woman cop who stood to BJP leaders threat and become a viral sensation online has now faced the wrath of the Yogi Adityanath government. Chief Minister has transferred Circle Inspector Shreshtha Thakur on Saturday. It was few days ago that she fined a local BJP leader for not wearing a helmet and arrested five party workers for misbehaving with her. The video has become a sudden sensation online.

Thakur, who was posted in Bulandshahar’s Syana, was transferred to Bahraich after local BJP leaders complained against her. A delegation of 11 MLAs and an MP reportedly raised the issue with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Thakur was conducting a vehicle check in Syana on June 22 when she stopped a motorbike and fined the rider, who identified himself as BJP leader Pramod Kumar, Rs 200 for not wearing a helmet. The man allegedly started misbehaving with Thakur and boasted of his political clout and that of his wife, a Zila Panchayat member in Bulandshahar.

Soon, Kumar phoned other BJP workers, who, along with local BJP president Mukesh Bhardwaj, reached the spot and argued that police had no right to check vehicles.

Hitting back, Thakur accused them of goondaism and bullying and said they were bringing their party a bad name. “You please go and get written orders from the Chief Minister that the police have no right to check vehicles... that we can't do our job. You are bringing a bad name to your party. People will soon start saying that you are BJP goondas."

Bhardwaj in turn accused Thakur and her colleagues of making derogatory remarks against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
