UP government ordered an inquiry into the suicide of the theft accused

Kanpur : The Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a probe into the case where a woman accused of theft committed suicide at Kanpur’s Asha Jyoti Kendra.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the police had arbitrarily kept the accused woman at the center which was against the rules.

A senior official said, “The center caters to domestic violence victims, forgotten, abandoned and destitute women. The accused cannot be kept at the centre.”

After this, District Magistrate Neha Sharma has constituted an inquiry committee under the leadership of Additional City Magistrate Vanya Singh to investigate the matter.

“Action will be taken against those found guilty,” Sharma said.

The manager of the center has also been asked to clarify.

DCP Raveena Tyagi will investigate the role of the police in the entire case and the investigation is to be completed within a week.
