SSP City Ghaziabad Salman Taj said they have arrested the MP along with his family in the dowry death case filed by deceased’s family and soon the trio will be produced before the court. According to police, 29-year-old Himani was found bleeding profusely following a gunshot injury in a bathroom of their residence in Sanjay Nagar, Ghaziabad around 10.30 am on Wednesday. 

Himani was rushed to the hospital by family members but she was pronounced brought dead by authorities. The police reached the hospital after getting information from other sources. Kashyap’s elder son Sagar married Himani three years ago.

She was the daughter of former Uttar Pradesh Minister Hira Lal Kashyap and had a year-old son. The victim’s father had accused MP’s family of harassing her daughter for dowry. He said, ‘’They used to demand dowry such as car and jewellery and killed her intentionally. My daughter wanted to come back home.”

On the other hand, Narendra Kashyap had rubbished the allegations by his daughter-inlaw’s family against his family. “We did not demand any dowry during my son’s wedding. If we had demanded any money, how come there has been no complaint during the past two years,” he said.
