On the basis of the findings of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up by CM Yogi Adityanath, the personal secretaries of three UP ministers were sent to jail on late Saturday night after they were booked for corruption and bribery.

 

Confirming the action, ADG, Lucknow zone, Rajeev Krishna (IPS:1991:UP), who was heading the SIT, claimed that all the three --OP Kashyap, Ram Niwas Tripathi and Santosh Awasthi attached to cabinet minister OP Rajbhar, mining minister Archana Pandey and deputy education minister Sandeep Singh (grandson of former CM Kalyan Singh who is currently Rajasthan governor) respectively -- were booked under Section 7 of Prevention of Corruption Act. “They were sent to jail after the charges against them were found to be true in our probe,” said the ADG.

 

The action taken against them was based on the CCTV footage evidence where the three are seen seeking bribe in lieu of certain favors during a sting operation conducted by a Hindi news channel in December 2016.
