riya: Bjp Mla Vinay Shakya’s Daughter Seeks Police Cover | Kanpur News

Kanpur: Riya Shakya, daughter of Bidhuna MLA Vinay Shakya, has written to superintendent of police Auraiya, demanding security for herself and her brother.
Riya, in her letter given to the SP on Wednesday evening, however, did not mention from whom she and her brother have threat to their lives.
In the letter, it was said that as the assembly elections are round the corner, she (Riya) will step into politics as the successor of her father. Therefore, a security cover is being required for her and her brother.
The SP, meanwhile, has given instructions to the officer concerned that any step should be taken after understanding the family issues and after thorough investigation.
Riya, a resident of Bhataura village of Kotwali Bidhuna, had hogged the limelight after a video went viral on the social media on Tuesday wherein she could be seen claiming that her father had been kidnapped. Her statement, however, was dismissed by her father and sitting BJP MLA Vinay Shakya on Wednesday.
He had told reporters on Wednesday that his daughter’s allegations were false and baseless and he was safe and sound at his ancestral residence in Shanti colony in Etawah along with his mother and brother. He added that the act by his daughter is just a political gimmick. The police also termed Riya’s allegations to be unsubstantiated.
Later on Wednesday evening, Riya through a letter appealed to the SP Abhishek Verma for providing security for herself and her brother Siddhartha. It was also said in the letter that considering her father’s successor, she has stepped into politics. “This creates a stalemate in the family,” she stated in the letter.
SP Auraiya said, “Riya has asked for police security cover. Keeping in mind the things said by Riya, I have instructed the circle officer (CO) Bidhuna Mahendra Pratap Singh to look into the matter. A decision on this will be taken only after thorough investigation.”
A senior police official privy to the investigations, however, said that the applicant had not mentioned anything in specific like from whom she and her brother have threat to their lives.
To recall, Riya Shakya had on Tuesday accused her uncle and grandmother of taking away her father with them and requested the state government to investigate and reunite her father with the family. “My father is not well. We’re working for BJP in the area but our uncle took my father to Lucknow. I request the government to help us in finding the whereabouts of my father,” Riya had stated.
She also said in the video that her father had suffered a brain stroke on May 1, 2018, after which he was admitted to the SGPGI in Lucknow. His father cannot speak clearly and after the operation, his thinking power has also reduced.
