LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav reportedly threatened a senior Uttar Pradesh IPS officer Amitabh Thakur over phone on Friday.

Thakur, the 1992 batch IPS officer, posted as Inspector General (IG) Civil Defence has accused the Sip Chief of threatening him. He alleged that Yadav phoned him from a landline number at 4:43 PM on his mobile phone.

“The caller said that netaji (Mulayam Singh) wanted to speak with me and then handed over the phone to him,” Thakur said.

In the conversation that lasted for 2 minutes and 10 seconds recorded by IPS officer who also shared the same through email, the person on the other side of the call reportedly Yadav is issuing threats to the officer that he should improve himself or face same outcome as Jasrana incident (town in Firozabad district in Uttar Pradesh) where he was saved by him from being beaten up during a function.

“Don’t you remember what happened with you during Jasrana daawat (party). I think we should do same to you again,” the voice said.

Thakur along with his social activist wife Nutan Thakur on Thursday lodged an FIR against the mining minister of Uttar Pradesh government headed by Akhilesh Yadav Gayatri Prasad Prajapati along with many others, for trying to ‘frame’ the couple in ‘false’ cases of rape and other charges.
