  • This is not the first time that a lady police officer has been transferred for taking action against the BJP leaders in Uttar Pradesh. Charu Nigam also went through almost the same set of incidents as Shrestha did.
  • In 2024, she fell victim to marital fraud when she was tricked into marrying Rohit Raj Singh who falsely claimed to be an IRS officer. Consequently, she was defrauded of lakhs of rupees.
  • In 2024, she filed a complaint in Ghaziabad, alleging that her ex-husband had deceived her by impersonating an IRS officer and swindling lakhs of rupees from multiple individuals. She claimed that her former husband, Rohit Raj Singh, not only misrepresented himself when marrying her but also exploited her position as a police officer to extort money from others. He allegedly transferred Rs 15 lakh, meant for buying a plot in Lucknow, to his account using forged signatures. Thakur disclosed that she wedded him in 2018 through a matrimonial site. When discussing her ex-husband’s fraud in an interview, she said,

    Rohit Raj Singh had described himself as a 2008 batch IRS officer, Deputy Commissioner and posted in Ranchi…Despite knowing the truth, the applicant did not spoil the marital relationship and fulfilled all the financial demands of Rohit and his family and in 2018 took a loan against my own salary and transferred the money to Rohit’s father’s account. Even after supporting Rohit completely, there was no change in his behaviour and he continued to collect huge amounts of money from many people by misleading and cheating them using my police post and name. After talking to Rohit and his family on this issue, Rohit and his family started harassing me. I was beaten up by Rohit Raj Singh and my child was threatened with death.” [5]The Indian Express

  • She accused Rohit, along with his father and brother, of fraudulently transferring Rs 15 lakh to their account through forged signatures and misuse of ATM cards.

She revealed,

    Fed up with all these things, I got divorced from Rohit Raj Singh three years ago. But to misuse my name, after Ranchi and Bihar, he had made his new base in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad. He started cheating people and told all my staff that he was posted as Commissioner of Income Tax, Delhi. He also got married again two years ago. He has created a fake Facebook ID by misusing the photo of my small child.” [6]The Indian Express

  • On 9 February 2024, Rohit Raj Singh was arrested by the Ghaziabad police.
  • She gives Taekwondo training to girls for self-defence.
