A court here on Wednesday held former BSP Rajya Sabha member Narendra Kashyap, his wife and their son guilty for the death of his daughter-in-law in 2016. A case was registered against Kashyap and family members for killing Himani, 29, who was married to Sagar Kashyap.

Himani's uncle Om Prakash alleged that she was shot dead for not bringing enough dowry. The Kashyap family was reportedly demanding a Fortuner SUV since the solemnization of the wedding. Om Prakash named Kashyap, his wife Devendri Devi, son Sagar, younger son Siddharth and sister-in-laws Sarita and Shobha as the culprits.

Himani was found dead with a gunshot injury in the bathroom at her home in Sector 23 Sanjay Nagar here. Himani was the daughter of Hira Lal Kashyap, a former minister in the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh. She was the mother of a year-old son. A licensed pistol in her husband's name was found alongside her body. The family rushed her to a hospital where she was declared dead.
