New Delhi: Shrestha Thakur, the woman cop of Bulandshahr, who hit the headlines few days back for confronting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and taking five party workers into custody for not obeying traffic rules has been transferred from Bulandshahr to Bahraich on Sunday.
According to the reports of leading daily, Hindustan Times, local leaders had demanded action against the woman cop in a meeting of a delegation of the party’s 11 MLAs and MP with chief minister Yogi Adityanath, that was held a week after the incident took place.
If reports are to be believed, Mukesh Bhardwaj, the party city president accused the woman cop of using foul language against the Uttar Pradesh CM and other party leaders. He left no stone unturned in admitting that Thakur’s transfer was essential to keeping the pride of party workers and leaders intact, claimed Hindustan Times report.
A week ago, a video footage of that incident went viral on social media. The video shows Shrestha confronting BJP district-level worker Pramod Lodhi for not carrying proper documentation of his motorcycle. “Please go and get written orders from the Chief Minister that the police have no right to check vehicles. Hum raat mein parivar ko chhor ke duty karte hain, maze lene ke liye nahi (we leave our families at home at night not to have fun but to do our job),” Thakur was seen screaming at agitated BJP workers who raised slogans against the police.
Calling them BJP goondas (goons) she told BJP workers that they were bringing a bad name to their party. The BJP workers on the other hand had accused police of taking bribe in the name of traffic rules and acting against Bharatiya Janata Party leaders. However, Shrestha had refuted all the allegations.
