Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government on Friday recommended a CBI probe into the death of Sara Singh, daughter-in-law of jailed former minister Amarmani Tripathi, in a car accident in Firozabad earlier this month.
"The government has sent a letter to the Centre recommending CBI probe into mysterious death of Sara Singh in Firozabad on July 9," UP Home Secretary, Mani Prakash Mishra told reporters here.
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.
Her husband 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, Chief Minister, DGP and SSP of Lucknow demanding CBI inquiry .
Seema Singh, the mother of Sara had called on the Governor Ram Naik and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and had apprised them of the case and pressed for CBI probe and was assured of help.
The family had also demanded the narco analysis test of Sara's husband Amanmani and father in law Amarmani Tripath.
An FIR of murder was lodged against Amanmani Tripathi at the Sirsaganj police station of Firozabad on July 18, police said.
Sara's mother had met the Superintendent of Police, Firozabad Piyush Srivastava and raised certain objections over the post mortem report of her daughter saying that there was no mention of the injury marks on her body nor was it (post mortem )conducted by a panel of doctors.
Amanmani's father Amarmani Tripathi, an influential politician from eastern Uttar Pradesh is currently serving a life sentence in the Madhumita Shukla murder case.
Meanwhile, Madhumita's sister Nidhi Shukla also supported Sara's family and said that she would stand by them to ensure justice is meted to them.
"I want justice for Sara. I had fought for my sister Madhumita and now I will support Sara's family," Nidhi said.
