The Uttar Pradesh government today ordered a probe into the reports that former state minister Amarmani Tripathi, the main convict in the Madhumita Shukla murder case, had been missing from Varanasi jail since the past one-and-a-half month.
Special DG, Brij Lal said that Tripathi has been missing from the jail since July 13 after he had been allowed by the court to attend his mother's cremation in Gorakhpur.
"A strong view has been taken on Tripathi getting himself admitted to hospital without any information and all those found responsible for it would be punished after the inquiry," Lal said.
According to officials, two days after he was allowed to go to Gorakhpur, Tripathi had got himself admitted to Gorakhpur Medical College hospital without informing the jail administration.
Later on September 3, he got himself admitted to the general ward of the neurology department of the Kashi Hindu University hospital, they said.
However, Senior Superintendent of Central Jail Varanasi, Capt S K Pandey said Tripathi has been discharged from the hospital and he was being brought back to jail.
Tripathi, his wife Madhumani and two others were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Dehradun court in the murder case of poetess Madhumita Shukla in Lucknow in May 2003.
