Shreshtha Thakur, the woman circle officer who was transferred after she took action against BJP activists in Bulandshahr, has joined for duty in Bahraich.

When approached by mediapersons, Thakur promised to interact with them at her office on Saturday.
She said she was yet to be assigned a responsibility or circle by the SP.
Bahraich DSP told HT over that Thakur was supposed to join on Saturday, but as her leave for joining was to end, she reported for duty on Friday.
The officer had slapped a fine of Rs 200 on a local BJP leader for not wearing a helmet while riding a bike and also booked five others for obstructing discharge of official duty at Sayana circle of Bulandshahr last month.
A video of her conversation with the BJP activists went viral on social media, following which the state government transferred her to Bahraich.

A large number of mediapersons and social activists reached the Police Lines expecting to see Thakur. However, she was not invited for the meeting, police sources said.
