An FIR was registered against senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur last night accusing him of rape, hours after he lodged a complaint against Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for allegedly threatening him.

Police registered an FIR against Thakur, an IG rank officer, under Sections 376 (rape), 504 (intentional insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC yesterday on the basis of a complaint by a Ghaziabad-based woman some time ago, in-charge of Gomti Nagar police station, Sayed Mohammad Abbas said today.

The IPS officer's wife, social activist Natun Thakur, has been named a co-accused in the FIR, he said.

In the FIR, the woman has said Nutan had visited Ghaziabad in November 2014 when she promised her a job for which she invited the alleged victim to Lucknow.

The woman has alleged that on December 31 she visited Thakur's residence and was directed to the officer's room by his wife for an "interview". When she went inside, Thakur raped him.

Terming the FIR as "baseless", Thakur described it as a "return gift" from the Samajwadi Party supremo.

"It is a return gift of Mulayam as I have exposed his threats and made it public and filed a complaint against it to the police," the IPS officer said.

He claimed the police had earlier given in writing to the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) and the High Court that the charge of rape was fake.

Amitabh Thakur had yesterday filed a complaint with the police against Mulayam Singh Yadav, alleging that the SP chief threatened him with dire consequences if he does not "mend" his ways and also released the audio recording of the conversation.

Nutan had said the provocation for the threat could have been the FIR lodged by her against state Mines minister Gayatri Prajapati.
