The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday arrested Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Amanmani Tripathi, son of jailed former UP minister Amarmani Tripathi, in connection with the alleged murder of his wife Sara.
Sara died on July 9 when the car she was travelling in with Amanmani met with an accident on National Highway-2 in Firozabad district.
Amanmani, who miraculously escaped unhurt, was subsequently arrested, as he was absconding in a kidnapping case lodged against him in August last year.
Sara's mother Seema Singh alleged that her daughter was killed at the behest of Amarmani - who, along with his wife Madhumati, is serving life sentence in poet Madhumita Shukla's murder case.
