Sakshi Misra has also urged the MLAs and MPs of Bareilly to not help Rajesh Misra, who is out on his father’s orders to kill them. She also threatened that if anything would happen to her husband or his family, she would make sure that the accused would be behind the bars.
Meanwhile, Deputy Inspector General R K Pandey asserted that he had asked the SSP to extend security to the couple. He added that the police has not ascertained their location, thus, it would be difficult for them to give them security.
