Poetess close to UP politicians murdered

Lucknow, May 10
Mystery shrouds the last night murder of a 24-year-old poetess, considered close to certain politicians, here even as the Samajwadi Party demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

Even as family members of the deceased, Madhumita Shukla, alleged that the wife of a politician was behind the murder, the police is yet to get any clue in the case.

Meanwhile, Nidhi, the elder sister of the deceased, alleged that a politician’s wife was behind the murder. “The said politician had a very intimate relationship with my sister and both were going to marry soon,” she claimed, adding that Madhumita was also pregnant.

Madhumita Shukla was shot dead at her Paper Mill colony residence last evening. Her nine-year-old servant, who was present in the house at the time, informed the police of the incident late in the evening. UNI
