Six days after jailed former UP minister Amarmani Tripathi’s daughter-in-law Sara died in an alleged road accident, her mother Seema Singh filed a police complaint on Wednesday, seeking the registration of an FIR on charges of murder.
Senior Superintendent of Police, Lucknow, Rajesh Kumar Pandey confirmed receiving the complaint and declared that the next course of action would be taken after conducting a preliminary inquiry.
The mother explained that the family had been “in a state of shock” since Sara’s untimely death and could only now gather itself to take the decision in this regard. She rejected the claim that Sara had died in an “accident”, saying “my daughter was murdered as part of a conspiracy”.
Twenty-seven-year-old Sara, a law student, died in Firozabad on July 9 while she was on her way to Delhi with her husband Amanmani, the son of former state minister. Amanmani, who was driving the car, escaped unhurt.
Seema, who said in the past that her daughter wanted a divorce from Amanmani but the latter refused, told the SSP on Wednesday that Sara was “living (at her in-laws’) under pressure”.
Around six months ago, Sara had reportedly told her mother that Amanmani used beat her and that she feared that “something bad” could happen anytime.
On the day the alleged accident took place, Seema said that Siddharth (her youngest son and Sara’s brother) had received a call at around 1:30 pm. The caller, without naming Sara or Amanmani, said that an accident has taken place and then disconnected the phone. Seema said that a few minutes after the anonymous call, Amanmani rang from Sara’s cellphone and told them about the accident.
He reportedly called them again to inform that Sara had died, Seema said in her complaint.
The mother had met UP DGP Jagmohan Yadav on Monday and submitted an application demanding a CBI inquiry. She had also demanded that a narco analysis test be conducted on both Amanmani and his father Amarmani.
