Staff Reporter,

State Police Service (SPS) officer Anita Malviya, who faced strong criticism for allegedly being insensitive during the handling of gangrape case and was removed from the post of Superintendent of Railway Police, levelled serious allegations on the Railways system while interacting with mediapersons on Monday. Malviya, who has been attached to police headquarters, alleged that there are a lot of loopholes in the department which she tried to stop but her efforts hurt the interests of top officials and their people.

This is the reason she has been removed from her post by hatching conspiracy against her. Talking to reporters, Malviya said that those who conspired against her are the people who worked with her.

Notably, the day when sensational gangrape incident with civil service aspirant surfaced, she was seen laughing in front of mediapersons while talking about the case and reportedly said that she had a ‘headache talking about case again and again’. After the video of conversation went viral, there was anger among citizens, which was reflected on social media as well. The GRP police station was directly under her supervision. The GRP too had refused to register an FIR initially.

On the other hand, Inspector Ravindra Yadav, who was also removed from the post of SHO Habibganj, also said that “I took action immediately, despite it I was suspended. I will ask my top officials why such a big action has been taken against me.”

Notably the gangrape victim, who came in front of mediapersons for the first time on Sunday, in her statement told that only Inspector Ravindra Yadav was supportive when police personnel of MP Nagar police station and Habibganj GRP denied to lodge FIR in the case where she went along with her parents.

The State Government has also removed Yogesh Choudhary from the post of IG, Bhopal, and has been given charge of IG (Law & Order). Choudhary is being replaced by Jaideep Prasad. This is the first action that has been taken against senior officials. Till now, mostly the lower rank officials, including three SHOs apart and a middle-level official, had faced the action.
