Lucknow: In a late night move, the Uttar Pradesh government on Monday suspended senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur on charges of indiscipline and taking part in anti-government activities, a home department official said.



Thakur, who was serving as Inspector General (IG) Civil Defence, has been attached with the Director General of Police (DGP) office with immediate effect.

He has been charged with indiscipline, taking part in anti-government moves, overlooking the directives of the high court and being callous and indifferent in discharge of his official duties.

“He has been found prima facie guilty of these charges and suspended with immediate effect,” the home department official told IANS.

Thakur had recently opened a front against Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and alleged that he threatened him over phone.

Thakur had lodged a complaint at the Hazratganj police station last week and on Monday met union home ministry officials with regards to his security and the alleged threat call by Mulayam Singh.

In the past too, he has been filing RTIs, PILs and staging sit-ins, which officials pointed out was in complete contravention of service rules. The suspension order said Thakur also did not adhere to directives of the Allahabad High Court which had clearly spelt out that government officials should not file PILs while in service.

Thakur has also been asked not to leave the headquarters without prior sanction from the DGP, during his suspension period. (IANS)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
