In a shocking development, the daughter of BJP MLA from Bareilly Rajesh Misra has released a video along with her husband, claiming that the couple is facing threat to their lives from her father.
Misra’s daughter Sakshi (23) married Dalit youth Ajitesh Kumar on July 4.
In the video, Sakshi was seen saying that because she married Ajitesh against the wishes of her family in a temple, she faces threat to her life from her father.
“Honourable MLA Pappu Bhartaul ji and Vicky Bhartaul ji, please live and let us live in peace… I really am married, I am not wearing sindoor for fashion,” she says.
“Papa, you have sent your goons after me just like Rajiv Rana… I am tired… We are tired of hiding around and our life is in danger. Stop troubling Abhi and his relatives. I want to be happy and free,” she says in the video.
In another video, the couple was seen appealing to the police to provide them protection.
“My father will kill me and my husband if he finds us. He cannot tolerate his daughter marrying a boy from a Dalit family. My father’s men are trying to track us,” she said.
The videos have gone viral on social media platforms.
Bareilly SSP said the video has come into their notice and that security will ‘definitely’ be provided if they write to the police asking for it.
Meanwhile, the woman’s father and MLA Rajesh Misra denied the allegations and claimed that his daughter has not been threatened by any member of the family or any person associated with him.
“My daughter is an adult and has a right to take a decision,” he told media.
