Amitabh Thakur opposes Yadav Singh SLP, writes to CM

16af4c1Lucknow, Aug 6 - Suspended India Police Services officer Amitabh Thakur has openly opposed the filing of Special Leave Petition(SLP) in the Supreme Court by Uttar Pradesh government in the Yadav Singh case. In his letter to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav here today, Amitabh said the Allahabad High Court in its order dated July 16 last in PIL filed by his activist wife Dr Nutan Thakur handed over the case to CBI as being symptomatic of misuse of authority by people in the corridors of power, on which the CBI has started the process. The State government has filed this SLP on certain technical grounds merely to stop CBI enquiry where huge amount of state exchequer will be squandered on big advocates hired for this. Hence he has called for immediately stopping this legal process, at the same time saying that he would move the Court to fix responsibility of officials for filing this unwarranted petition. Amitabh was suspended after he made a police complaint of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav threatening him on phone over his continuous tirade against corrupt practises of UP mining minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati. The UP government yesterday moved the Supreme Court challenging the CBI probe against Noida Authority's suspended chief engineer Yadav Singh. The move comes a day after 16 teams of the CBI carried out conducted raids on Yadav Singh's properties across UP during the past 72 hours. Accusing the Centre of using the CBI for its political vendetta, the UP administration said the July 16 Allahabad High Court order directing the CBI probe came only after a joint secretary level officer of the central government asked for it. "The state government has very serious concern about the manner in which the central government singled out this case for the purpose of having the CBI take over the investigation," read the appeal of the SLP.
