UP govt recommends for CBI probe into Sara

Sara-Tirpathi-265Lucknow, Jul 24 - Uttar Pradesh government today recommended a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the mysteries death of Sara Singh, wife of Amanmani Tripathi, son of former state minister Amarmani Tripathi. Official sources here said that the recommendation for CBI probe for Sara's death has been sent to the Union Home Department. Earlier on July 21 the family members of Sara met Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and demanded for a CBI probe alleging that Sara was murdered by her husband and conspired by her father-in -law Amarmani. The Chief Minister announced that the government would take a decision on the CBI probe soon. He further added that even security wound be provided to the family of Sara as they have demanded for the same stating that they are facing threat on their lives. On July 18, acting on the complaint of the mother of Sara, the daughter-in-law of controversial jailed former minister Amarmani Tripathi, an FIR was lodged against her husband Amanmani Tripathi in Ferozabad. An FIR under sections 498 (enticing or taking away or detaining with criminal intent a married woman), 302 (murder) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) was lodged against Amanmani at Sirsaganj police station. Sara (27) was killed on July 9 when the car in which she was travelling overturned into a pit in a bid to save a cyclist in Firozabad district. Amanmani, who was driving the car, had miraculously escaped unhurt, raising doubts over the accident. The family, suspecting foul play, had been knocking the doors of the Raj Bhawan, DGP and SSP of Lucknow demanding CBI inquiry in the case. Former UP Minister Amarmani Tripathi and his wife Madhumani are in jail for life term in the murder of poetess Madhumita Shukla. Sara's mother Seema Singh yesterday in her statement given to the police said that Sara was pregnant and it may be just a coincidence that deceased poetess Madhumita Shukla was also pregnant when she was shot dead by the henchmen of Amarmani Tripathi. Amanmani had contested the 2012 Assembly polls on Samajwadi party ticket but failed to win.
