Amethi: In the wake of a clash which broke out here over a dispute involving his ancestral house, Congress MP Sanjay Singh on Thursday appealed to mediapersons "to avoid the publication of baseless news items" related to his family.

In a release here, Singh said, "The allegations by daughter Mahima Singh against me are totally baseless and misleading. Garima Singh... And Anant Vikram Singh are living in the palace and are leading normal lives."

"The allegations levelled against me by Mahima are only to evoke false sympathy and are baseless," Singh added.

The Congress leader further said, "Anant Vikram has alleged that his life is in danger and following this the administration has ensured that only his staff is allowed to enter Bhupati Bhavan after proper checking."

Singh and his second wife Amita are locked in a dispute over Bhupati Bhavan with Anant Vikram and Garima.

In a clash which had broken out between police and alleged supporters of Anant Vikram in the Ramnagar area here on Sept. 14, a constable was killed and six persons injured.

According to police, the clash took place as Anant Vikram's supporters gathered outside Bhupati Bhavan after hearing that the Congress MP and his wife Amita were to arrive in Amethi.
