Faizabad, Aug 19 (UNI) A local court today turned down the request of former Uttar Pradesh minister and jailed Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLA Anand Sen Yadav to attend the ongoing monsoon session of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.
Yadav is presently confined in the district jail over high profile Shashi murder case.
The former minister had forwarded an application, seeking request to attend the Assembly session, in Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Shailesh Kumar Tiwari's Court.
However, the Court denied him the permission as it was a brief session of the Assembly.
On June 14, Yadav had surrendered at Ghazipur police station in the Lucknow and the very next day he was put behind the bars here.
Shashi, a IIIrd yr law student of Saket Degree College, went missing on October 22 from here.
State minister Anand Sen Yadav was found an accused of the murder and even had to resign from the Mayawati cabinet, after the victim's father alleged his role in the case.
Interestingly, when the Mayawati cabinet had taken oath of office in May 2007, Anand could not be sworn in as a minister as he was behind bars in a murder case. He however took oath later.
His father Mitra Sen Yadav, an MP, was allegedly involved in a case of human trafficking.
