Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today refused to meet the family of jailed rape-accused former minister Gayatri Prajapati at his residence.
According to family members of the SP leader Prajapati's wife, who was accompanied by two daughters, said a minister present at the venue assured them that their grievance would be heard.
"We wanted to meet the chief minister, but he did not meet us," Prajapati's wife told reporters outside the 5- Kalidas Marg residence here of the CM where he was meeting people during the 'Janata Darshan' programme to listen to public grievances. "I am confident that my husband will get justice, she said.
The controversial SP leader was granted bail by a special court last week in a rape and molestation case. But the Allahabad High Court stayed the bail granted to Prajapati by Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) court judge O P Mishra.
The high court administration suspended the judge for granting the bail and ordered a departmental inquiry.
