On Monday, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has issued a show cause notice to ex-Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mulayam Singh Yadav of having links with reportedly giving threats to IPS officer Amitabh Thakur in 2015.
The justice-bench headed by Shashikant has passed the order over a petition moved by Amitabh Thakur.
Mr. Yadav has been charged with threatening the senior IPS officer on July 10, 2015, over a phone call. After several investigations, police gave him a clean chit.
However, the Samajwadi Party leader has opposed the final report in the Allahabad High Court.
Later, the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Lucknow has rejected the final report by the police and asked to lodge the case as a complaint.
Mr. Thakur has challenged the CJM’s order, pleading that the case should be filed as a police case and argued that all the evidence pointed towards a prime offense against Mr. Yadav.
On July 11, 2015, a police complaint was lodged, which also followed by a complaint by the IPS officer that Mr. Yadav has threatened him over a phone call and further released the audio footage of the phone call.
Mr. Thakur reported that the SP leader was also unhappy over a complaint registered by his wife Nutan against then State Minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati.
