Lucknow: It seems to be no ending of problems for the first family of Uttar Pradesh as the Chief Minister’s wife and newly elected MP Dimple Yadav has caught in fresh trouble with Allahabad High Court issuing legal notice to her and Kannauj DM allegedly provoking Samajwadi Party workers to create ruckus during June 24 Kannauj by-election.

Hearing a petition filed by advocate Prabhat Pandey, Allahabad High Court has issued notice to Dimple Yadav and District Magistrate of Kannauj seeking reply within six weeks.

According to the petition, the petitioner was beaten up and kidnapped by the SP supporters on the behest of Dimple Yadav during Kannauj Lok Sabha by-polls. However, Pandey somehow managed to reach DM office where he was again manhandled, added the petitioner.

‘The district administration has not stop Samajwadi Party workers from mishandling him’, said the advocate.

‘The advocate accused Dimple Yadav of creating hurdle during the by-polls so that she could be elected unopposed. Since she is the Chief Minister’s wife, DM and other officials had refused to help him’, added the petitioner. He was stopped from filing nomination in the by-polls said Pandey.
