Lucknow: FIR Against 4 For Allegedly Instigating Woman And Daughter To Attempt Suicide Outside CM Office
A mother-daughter of Smriti Irani’s parliamentary constituency Amethi set themselves ablaze in front of the Chief Minister’s Office in Lucknow. According to the complaint of the mother and daughter, on May 9, in a quarrel that started over a drain, the village bullies beat them up and allege that Amethi’s Jamo police is siding with the bullies instead of them.
This is the reason why they reached outside of the Chief Minister’s office for justice and tried to commit suicide. This incident brings back memories of the Unnao gang-rape case of 2017 when a rape victim tried to commit suicide by reaching out to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s house for justice.
In this accident, Safiya Bano’s body has been burnt to 80 percent and her condition is critical. His daughter Gudiya is burnt to 40%, whose condition is out of danger. At the same time, the Amethi police have started an investigation of the level of an additional SP against four policemen including the SO.

Safia and her daughter allege that after the beating when she reached Jamo police station to lodge a complaint, the domineering people there already threatened her and then filed a case against them. Amethi is a high profile parliamentary constituency which is considered to be the Congress stronghold in UP.
However, BJP’s Smriti Irani defeated Rahul Gandhi on this seat in the general elections in 2019. Former Amethi MP Rahul Gandhi and UP Congress in-charge Priyanka Gandhi have kept silent on the whole matter, while the current MP Smriti Irani accepts the police’s claim as true.
