The daughter-in-law of BSP Rajya Sabha member Narendra Kashyap was on Wednesday found dead inside the bathroom of their house in Sanjay Nagar under mysterious circumstances.
Kavi Nagar SHO Ashok Shishodia said that family members rushed a profusely bleeding Himanshi Kashyap with gunshot injury on her head to a nearby hospital where doctors declared her brought dead.
Police sprang into action only after getting information from other sources and reached the hospital where a medico-legal memo confirmed that the 29-year-old was brought dead by family members.
Her husband Sagar told the police that she had committed suicide using his licensed pistol.
Police teams reached the spot and collected evidence and were probing whether it is a case of suicide or murder as no suicide note has been recovered from the spot.
The firearm has been seized.
Himanshi, the daughter of former BSP minister Hiralal Kashyap was married to Sagar three years ago and the couple have a one-year-old son.
Prima facie it is a case of suicide, police said, adding the body has been sent for post mortem.
So far we have not received any complaint, the SHO said.
