Today there is a rally of CM Yogi in Kanpur. The administration had earlier got Manish’s body cremated at 5 in the morning.
The case of Kanpur businessman Manish Gupta’s death in Gorakhpur has gained momentum. It is alleged that Manish died due to police assault. There have been two major turning points in this case. The first is that the Kanpur administration has done Manish’s last rites in the early hours. The administration says that this step has been taken with the consent of the family. Second, a day before, a video of Gorakhpur’s DM and SSP has surfaced, in which they are advising Manish’s wife not to file a case in a threatening manner.
Manish’s post-mortem report has also come out. In this, injury marks have been found on Manish’s body. On the other hand, SP President Akhilesh Yadav has also reached Kanpur to meet the victim’s family. In the afternoon there is also a public meeting of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Kanpur. The administration has assured Manish’s wife Meenakshi to meet CM Yogi. Earlier on Wednesday, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi also spoke to Manish’s wife over the phone.
Wife demands SIT probe
In the morning when Manish’s body was being taken for the last rites, wife Meenakshi fainted. Meenakshi is demanding the investigation of the case by the SIT. She wants to meet Chief Minister Yogi. It is alleged that Manish, who was staying in Gorakhpur hotel on Monday night, was beaten up by the policemen. After that he had died. Manish’s body was brought to his house in Kanpur from Gorakhpur at 9 am on Wednesday. Angered by the incident, the family refused to perform the last rites. Their demand was that they would meet CM Yogi, demand action against the culprits and take compensation only after that they would perform the last rites.
Manish was cremated by the Kanpur administration at 5 am.
Wife said- DM and SSP ‘advised’ not to file a case
In the video that surfaced on Wednesday, Gorakhpur’s DM and SSP were seen advising Meenakshi and her family not to register a case under any circumstances. This was a video made at the BRD Medical College police post. In this, Meenakshi is demanding justice from DM Vijay Kiran Anand and SSP Dr. Vipin Tada for her husband’s death by taking a 4-year-old innocent son in her lap.
Confirming the video, Meenakshi said that on Tuesday night from 8 to 12 pm, the officials and the family met twice. In this, DM Vijay Kiran Anand and SSP Dr. Vipin Tada ‘advised’ not to register a case under any circumstances.
Meenakshi alleges that the number of guilty in this case are the policemen of Ramgarhtal police station, equally guilty are the SSP Dr. Vipin Tada and DM Vijay Kiran Anand, who instead of helping a widowed woman, saved the killer policemen. Keep busy.
The family of 6 policemen will be ruined
Ashish Gupta, brother-in-law of the deceased Manish told that he was also present with Meenakshi. Meenakshi sister-in-law, while demanding a government job, said that now who will take care of her and her son? On this the officials kept on explaining that Manish did not do any government job, which you will get?
Ashish told that the officers accepted that they knew that the fault was of the police, but your one case will ruin the family of 6 policemen. Nothing will be gained by this. On this, Meenakshi asked the officers that what will happen to the one who has ruined my life? So the officers started turning things around.
DM had said – years will have to be taken around the court
At the same time, DM is seen saying in the video that I am like your brother. Once the case is registered, you have no idea that you will have to go around the court for years. Nobody gains anything from this. Years will pass by. While the SSP is seen saying that the policemen did not have any enmity with Manish, who would do so. I suspended him on your request. They will not be reinstated until they get a clean chit. After this, after receiving a call from CM Yogi Adityanath, a case was registered against all the policemen in this matter.
