BSP MP Narendra Kashyap Arrested After Daughter In Law’s Murder

The daughter-in-law of BSP Rajya Sabha member Narendra Kashyap was found dead in his house on Wednesday morning (April 6), triggering cries of murder from her family that alleged she was being harassed for dowry. Himanshi Kashyap’s body, with a gunshot injury in her head, was allegedly discovered in a first-floor washroom of the bungalow in Ghaziabad’s Sanjay Nagar where she lived with her husband and in-laws, including Narendra. Her in-laws told police Himanshi had committed suicide by shooting herself with her husband Sagar’s .32 bore revolver after locking the washroom door. They rushed a bleeding Himanshi to Yashoda Superspeciality Hospital in Nehru Nagar, where doctors declared her brought dead. Police, however, said they were informed by the private hospital Himanshi was taken to, not her in-laws, about the death and were investigating the possibility of both suicide and murder. Later in the day, an FIR was filed at Kavi Nagar police station in which Narendra, his wife Devendri, his two sons Sagar and Siddharth and his two daughters under sections 304B (dowry death), 498A (cruelty by husband or in-laws) of the IPC and sections of the Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961.

BSP MP Narendra Kashyap along with his wife and son was arrested in Ghaziabad on Thursday (April 7) under anti-dowry laws in connection with the death of his daughter-in-law. Kashyap, who is a member of Rajya Sabha, and his wife Devendri were arrested by Kavi Nagar police from Yashoda Hospital’s ICCU ward where they were admitted on April 6 after they complained of chest pain. Their son Sagar, who is the husband of victim Himanshi, was also arrested as the police have found “prima facie” complicity of the trio in the dowry death case, police officials said. SHO Kavinagar Ashok Shishodia said that a team of government doctors was constituted to examine the MP and his wife to determine if they actually require medical attention. Chief Medical Superintendent of Yashoda Hospital Sangeeta Garg said that after examination by the team, police arrested Kashyap and his wife. Himanshi, the 29 year-old daughter-in-law of Kashyap, was found dead inside bathroom of their sector-23 Sanjay Nagar residence with gunshot injury on her head at around 11 AM on Wednesday. An FIR under sections 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 304B (death of a woman caused by burns or bodily injuries) of IPC and section 3 and 4 of Dowry Prohibition Act was lodged against the three as well as the MP’s daughters Shobha and Sarita and Sagar’s younger brother Siddharth yesterday. Officials said that the other three will be arrested soon. District Magistrate Vimal Sharma said that “a detailed report is being sent to Rajya Sabha Chairman informing himabout the incident and the arrest of parliamentarian”. Hariom Kashyap, Himanshi’s uncle, in his complaint alleged that Narendra Kashyap’s family members used to torture the girl for not bringing enough dowry. They always insisted that she bring a Fortuner SUV from her parents, he claimed.
