IPS officer Amitabh Thakur files complaint against Mulayam

Lucknow,July 11: Senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur today filed a police complaint against Samajwadi party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for allegedly threatening him over phone.

Posted as inspector general (IG) Civil Defence (Lucknow), the 1992-batch IPS officer Thakur, alleged that Mulayam called him on his cell phone from a landline at 4:43 PM.

"The caller said netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) wants to talk to me and handed over the phone to him," Thakur said.

In the 2 minutes 10 seconds long conversation, as recorded and then shared by the IPS officer through email, the person on the other side of the call - purportedly Mulayam Singh Yadav - is heard issuing threats to the IPS officer that he should improve himself or face the same fate as Jasrana incident where he was saved by him from being beaten up during a function.
