In an another act of blatant mockery of law and order, the Uttar Pradesh's BJP government had transferred an upright woman police officer after she sent 5 BJP workers to jail for creating obstacles in discharging government duties.

Shrestha Thakur, the woman police officer in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh who took on local BJP leaders for violating traffic rules last week, was transferred to Behraich district on Saturday.

Her Facebook post said, "Wherever it goes, it distributes light". "I think the differences between the officer and the public were beyond any compromise and so it is good for everyone that she has been transferred, including the officer". These BJP leaders had accused Thakur of only targetting the BJP workers.

After the situation got out of control, Thakur even asked the workers to get a letter signed from the chief minister stating that the police should not check vehicles.

In a video footage of the incident that has gone viral, Thakur, a Circle Officer (CO), was seen confronting agitated BJP workers who are raising slogans against the police.

They reportedly told Adityanath that it was an issue of the pride for them and the police officer needed to be taught a lesson.

Mukesh Bhardwaj, the party city president, made no bones in admitting that Thakur's transfer was essential to keeping intact the pride of party workers and leaders. She slapped him with a fine of Rs 200.

The Senior Superintendent of Police Saharanpur and Agra were transferred as part of larger transfers of SSPs a week after they took against BJP and RSS workers for attaching the house of SSP and rioting in Saharanpur and attacking a police station and beating a police officer, burning police vehicles and trying to release arrested RSS workers from police lock-up in Agra in April.

Despite claims by local leadership, the development is not seen as a punishment transfer.

In the video, Thakur could be heard admonishing the workers.
