Six siblings, aged between 4 and 17 years in Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav’s constituency in Kannauj, pleaded for mercy killing in a petition filed with the district magistrate.
The children lost their parents to a road accident and have been unable to secure the insurance amount and complained of corruption by revenue officials. A 2.5 bigha land their parents owned has been encroached upon by another person. The petition mentioned that they did not want to live on the mercy of their neighbours and relatives who gave them food occasionally.
