Priti Kumari, a constable at Bhagalpur police station in Bihar, had a love story straight out of a Bollywood movie. Last year, when she was posted at the Sitamarthi woman police station, she fell in love with a Mithu Sah. Sah was listed as one of the 'most-wanted' gangsters in that district.
The two, according to a report in The Telegraph, used to meet secretly outside the Sitamarhi police lines where Priti lived. Apparently, Priti was fascinated by his Mithu's lifestyle.
They reportedly even got married at a temple.
However, things didn't quite end well for Priti.
Soon, the superintendent of police (SP) at the same police station Sitamarhi, Hari Prasath, came to know about the affair. He ordered a probe.
During the course of inquiry, it was found that the constable supplied confidential information related to the department to her gangster husband, reports Gulf News.
The inquiry report also accused her of tarnishing the image of the police department. She was asked for clarification.
"By marrying a person with criminal antecedents, she had given the force a bad name," Sitamarhi SP told The Telegraph.
When she failed to provide a reply that would convince her seniors, the police department decided to fire her from service.
