UP BJP MLA’s daughter surfaces in court after witnesses claim couple was kidnapped

Sakshi Misra, daughter of BJP MLA Rajesh Misra from Bithari Chainpur in Bareilly, and her husband have been on the run since she announced her marriage.

In an action-filled morning UP BJP MLAs daughter, who had alleged threat from father after marrying a Dalit man, surfaced at Allahabad high court after kidnap rumours.

Sakshi Misra (23), daughter of Rajesh Misra MLA from Bithari Chainpur in Bareilly, and her husband have been on the run since she announced her marriage to Ajitesh Kumar (29) last week. Ajitesh was allegedly assaulted by persons in black coats in high Court corridor, their lawyer said.

Earlier, eyewitnesses claimed the couple was kidnapped at gunpoint by armed men from outside the Allahabad High Court, where they had gone to seek protection.

The Allahabad High Court had fixed Monday for hearing a petition filed by the couple, who had gone into hiding, fearing threat to their lives form the Misra.

Harish Kumar, father of Ajitesh Kumar, had said that he had no knowledge of the whereabouts of the couple and that he and his family have also left Bareilly, fearing threat to their lives.

Sakshi had uploaded videos on social media last week announcing her wedding to Ajitesh and alleging that her life was in danger from her father and had asked police for security.

In an appeal to her father, Sakshi had asked him to back off and let the couple live peacefully while warning him to ‘stay off Ajitesh and his family’ or face the consequences. “I have married of my free will and my father has sent out his goons for us… I am tired of running, I seek police protection,” she says in a video where Kumar can be seen sitting next to him. “If they catch us, they will definitely kill us,” she adds.

Kumar also spoke, in the video, of the alleged goons following them, “We managed a narrow escape this morning after a group people landed at the hotel we were staying in.”

He alleged that Sakshi’s family was out to kill them for ‘honour’ as he was from a Dalit family. “If in another video, she has apprehended threat to her life from her father, brother and an associate, and urged the Bareilly senior superintendent of police to extend security to them.
