CID summons Amarmani Tripathi, wife

Sharat Pradhan in Lucknow | June 14, 2003 14:22 IST

Sacked Uttar Pradesh minister Amarmani Tripathi will appear before the Criminal Investigation Department of the state police on June 16 for his alleged involvement in the murder of Madhumita Shukla, a Hindi poetess.

Madhumita was gunned down in her two-bed room apartment in Lucknow's Paper Mill colony in April this year.

Tripathi's wife Madhumani has also been summoned for interrogation.

Unmarried Madhumita was seven-month pregnant when she was killed. A sample of her foetess was sent for DNA testing to a laboratory in Hyderabad last month.

Tripathi, who served the summons on Thursday, has agreed to appear before the CID at 8 pm on Monday.

A Congress defector, Tripathi is listed as a 'history-sheeter' in UP police's records and has as many as 33 criminal cases pending against him in different courts.

He is widely believed to have been close to Madhumita.
