NEW DELHI: A senior police officer was on Friday night allegedly manhandled and forcibly dumped into a mental asylum after he took on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati by alleging massive corruption in the state.
IPS officer Devendra Dutt Mishra, a DIG in the Uttar Pradesh Fire Service Department who is due to retire in 2 years, had threatened to make public files containing evidence of the massive embezzlement of funds in the purchase of equipment. He alleged that senior officers had siphoned off crores and that his superior had pressurised him to clear files, TimesNow reported.
Interacting with mediapersons at Lucknow, he blamed the state administration and cited certain incidents in which certain officers in the lower hierarchy have been hounded by the powers-that-be.
Speaking to reporters at his office Mishra said that the Mayawati government was thoroughly corrupted and had used money to buy favours from people.
