Court orders forfeiture of inspector Upmanyu Saxena’s property

BHOPAL: The Court on Friday ordered forfeiture of police inspector Upmanyu Saxena’s property, as he failed to surrender, two months after an abetment to suicide case was registered against him.

Saxena is accused of abetting his 30-year-old live-in partner, Indu Sharma, an assistant professor with a private college in the city to commit suicide at her Misrod home on May 11. Saxena is absconding since past two months.

Investigating officials furnished details of his property in the court, which includes a car and a gypsy, two bank accounts having deposit of Rs 1.4 lakh and Rs 4,000, besides two scooters and a land plot.

The court ordered to attach the property owned by him. Since wife of the accused is also working, the property registered on the name of his family could not be attached as it couldn’t be established whether it was bought solely by him or not, added officials.

A day earlier, family of Indu Sharma had demanded police to get Saxena’s official residence vacated where his family is residing. The deceased’s sister Priyanka alleged that police is going soft on Saxena.

However, police sources pointed out that Saxena was hiding in Jabalpur as per latest information, but they have not yet succeeded to nab him. Saxena would frequently come to meet Indu at her flat where she resided alone. The police said they were in touch since past few years.
