This woman police constable lost her job for falling in love with a gangster in Bihar
Patna, June 16: Love cost her "dream" job. Reason, she fell in love with a gangster and secretly married him in spite of being a cop employed with the Bihar Police department.
Her bosses after coming to know about her dereliction of duty sacked her from her job. The lady constable, Priti Kumari, was dismissed from service on Tuesday for allegedly leaking confidential information to Mithu Sah, a most-wanted gangster in Sitamarhi district.
According to police, Priti had secretly married Mithu at a temple. The order of her sacking was given by Bhagalpur senior superintendent of police Manoj Kumar.
"By marrying a person with criminal antecedents, she had given the force a bad name," Sitamarhi superintendent of police Hari Prasath S was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
