Lucknow, Nov 7 (UNI) Indu, the wife of controversial Bahujan Samaj Party MLA Anand Sen Yadav accused of the alleged kidnapping of a Dalit girl, today said a political conspiracy was being hatched against her husband.
Anand Sen had to resign from the Mayawati Ministry yesterday on moral grounds though he claimed he wa innocent. The Uttar Pradesh government ordered a CBI probe into the disappearance of the LLB-third year student, Shashi, from Faizabad on October 22.
Ms Indu told mediapersons here that her husband was not involved in any controversy with this girl and he had been politically targetted.
''We know the girl and her family members due to our political background,'' she said. She also denied that she or any member of her family had any showdown with Sashi.
Coming out in defence of her husband, she said media hype was being created to tarnish the image of her family members to destroy their political career.
Meanwhile, police was yet to recover the body of the girl said to have been killed by Vijay Sen Yadav, the driver of Anand Sen after abducting her. The accused is being interrogated.
Faizabad police has sent a special team to Sultanpur to trace out the body thrown in the river Gomti.
