BSP Rajya Sabha MP Narendra Kashyap’s daughter-in-law Himanshi was found dead in her bathroom on Wednesday with a gunshot injury on her head, police said.
Police said Himani Kashyap married Narendra Kashyap’s elder son Sagar about two years ago. She was the daughter of Hira Lal Kashyap, a former Uttar Pradesh minister in the Mayawati government.
She was rushed by the family to a hospital where she was declared brought dead.
“The family did not inform the police about the incident. The police came to know about it from the hospital memo,” Superintendent of Police Salman Taj Patil.
“Since the case is under investigation, it cannot be said whether it was a suicide or murder,” he said. “The body has been seized for autopsy.”
