A 30-year-old man was found dead at BJP MP Kaushal Kishore's residence in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow on Friday. The police recovered a pistol under the name of the minister's son from the spot.
The victim, Vinay Shrivastava and the minister's son, Vikas Shore were friends. "Three people were present there when the incident took place but I don't have any idea where was Vikas Kishore when the incident took place. His licensed revolver was recovered by police from the spot," Vikas Shrivastava, brother of the deceased said.
Union Minister Kishore however, denied that his son was present at the residence when the incident took place. "The pistol that police has recovered belongs to my son, Vikas Kishore. Police is conducting a thorough investigation. The culprits will not be spared. Vikas Kishore was not at the residence when the incident took place. Vikas was extremely sad when he got to know about this, the deceased Vinay was a very good friend of my son," the minister said.
The dead body has been sent for postportem and more details are awaited.
