Lucknow: Suspended IPS officer Amitabh Thakur today moved an application before a court here for registering an FIR against Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for allegedly threatening him with dire consequences on phone on July 10.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Som Prabha Mishra got the complaint registered and called for a report from Hazratganj police station and fixed the next date of hearing on August 4.
According to Thakur's activist-wife Nutan Thakur, he moved an application through his counsel Akhilesh Awasthi under section 156(3) CrPC.
Thakur had presented the complaint to Inspector of Hazratganj Vijay Pal Singh Yadav on July 11 and to SSP,Lucknow, Rajesh Pandey on July 23 when the Hazratganj police refused to register the FIR.
Nutan claimed that the Inspector Hazratganj intimated Thakur through a letter dated July 17 that his complaint has been inquired into and has been found to be not true.
Terming the inquiry illegal, Thakur presented the application before the CJM for registration of an FIR.
In the complaint, Thakur said the SP chief had telephoned him on July 10 and criminally intimidated him.
Thakur, who is locked in a tussle with the state government, was served a 200-page charge sheet and a vigilance inquiry initiated against him.
The IG-rank officer had triggered a political storm by releasing the text and audio of the conversation purportedly carrying Mulayam's voice.
