Lady IPS officer who testified against Advani may be shifted to US, claims Pak daily

1990 batch UP cadre IPS officer Anju Gupta, who has recently become a newsmaker thanks to her testimony against BJP leader LK Advani in an 18-year-old case of demolition of Babri mosque, could head towards an US posting because of security reasons, a Pakistani newspaper said.
According to Daily Times who broke the story said the senior UP cadre police officer who was incidentally was an eyewitness of the destruction at Ayodhya on December 6, 1992 is expected to be appointed an attaché at the Indian Embassy in Washington DC.
The newspaper quoting Indian home ministry sources said that she might face security threats because of her deposition and might be shifted to the US along with her husband Safi Ahsan Rizvi, an IPS of 1989 batch. Mr Rizvi who is an MBA from premier B-School IIM-Ahmedabad, is an Officer in Special Duty (OSD) to India’s home minister P Chidambaram.
Significantly, Ms Gupta who as an IPS officer was the part of the administrative arrangements in Faizabad on the fateful days leading to the demolition of the mosque said that Mr Advani delivered a provocative speech to the throng of kar sevaks who eventually tore down the mosque.
Ms Gupta, 47, now serves the ministry of home affairs (MHA) in New Delhi. In late 1990s she was far ahead of her peers in cracking down criminals in and around Lucknow, and was decorated with the Police Medal for meritorious services on February 8, 2009. She also has immense contribution in counter-human trafficking measures in India.
