Lucknow: A former legislator of the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) has written to party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, seeking permission to end his own life, and that of his wife.

In a letter addressed to Mulayam and Akhilesh, Abdul Samad Ansari and his wife Shehla Parveen have alleged harassment at the hands of Congress legislator Ajay Rai.

They said that over the last week, the Congress leader had been trying to defame them, with the aid of forged papers.

"There are some forged papers in the possession of Ajay Rai, Congress MLA, through which he is harassing me and my family" Ansari said.

Ajai Rai, representing the Pindra assembly seat in Varanasi, meanwhile, has trashed the allegations of the SP leader.
