The one the police had taken away from BHU was dead, the family was devastated after searching for two years Father used to come to UP by cycling from Madhya Pradesh to find his son, but the police kept hiding his 'sin'.

The DNA report of the dead body found two years ago has made it clear that the body was of Shiv Kumar Trivedi.

Since then Shiva has not been found anywhere. His death has been confirmed almost two years later. According to the police, Shiva's mental state was not good, due to which he died due to drowning in the pond.  Shiv, the eldest son of Pradeep Trivedi, a resident of Brajpur village of Badgarhi Khurd village of Panna district of Madhya Pradesh, was pursuing his second year B.Sc from BHU. Younger son Umashankar Trivedi is preparing for civil services. The police of Lanka police station registered a missing, but did not tell Shiva that he was brought to the police station. The PRV team of the Lanka police station took Shiva to the police station on 13 February 2020. While filing the missing report at the same police station, Pradeep was not told that 4 days ago Shiva was brought to the police station. Shiva's father got the advertisement printed and advertised in the newspapers. Then the secret of the police began to open.  The one the police had taken away from BHU was dead, the family was devastated after searching for two years Arjun, who informed PRV, called Pradeep after reading the missing report of Shiva on Facebook. On the night of February 13, when Shiva appeared in an unconscious state in the MPtheater ground on the BHU campus, Arjun Singh, who was passing by, called the police on 112 number.  Arjun Singh told that in the dark I felt that some student is sitting here due to intoxication, so I called on number 112. The police of Lanka police station came in front of me and took Shiva away. After that I also forgot it. Later I saw the missing poster on Facebook, then took the number of Shiva's father and told the whole thing.  The one the police had taken away from BHU was dead, the family was devastated after searching for two years 'Kept telling orally, but Varanasi police kept hiding the truth in writing' Pradeep Trivedi told that after talking to Arjun, he again went to the Lanka police station the very next day. Told the whole thing there, but the policemen said that they did not know anything. When he told the number of the PRV vehicle, the police told him the PRV of the police station Chetganj and made him walk from there.  The Chetganj police station was asked to inquire at the Sir Gate post. On going there, it was told to go to the control room. Didn't get any information from there either. After this, the next day, Shiva's father Pradeep reached the SSP with Arjun.  On Arjun's mobile number, a message came from number 112 was shown. The SSP called the driver number 112. After interrogation, the driver only told that we had dropped Shiv Kumar with the Lanka Police at 8.30 pm on the night of 13 February. Pradeep told that after the order of the SSP, I was sent in front of the then Inspector Lanka Bharat Bhushan Tiwari. The driver of PRV said that I had handed it over to him only. Bharat Bhushan confessed that Shiva was in custody overnight. When we saw him in the morning, he had made the bathroom in clothes. He seemed mentally ill. So we left him. Where did he go after this, we do not know, but no one told this in writing.  The one the police had taken away from BHU was dead, the family was devastated after searching for two years Shiva's case reached Allahabad High Court Saurabh Tiwari, an alumnus of BHU and a lawyer in the Allahabad High Court, learned the seriousness of the matter and filed a petition in the High Court regarding the matter. The first hearing of which took place on 25 August 2020.  In the first hearing, a joint bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Saumitra Dayal Singh had reprimanded the police and said that if necessary, the matter would be investigated by the CBI. The next hearing took place in September.  In this hearing, SSP Varanasi was asked to appear before the court with a personal affidavit. In the hearing on September 22, Varanasi SSP Amit Pathak submitted an affidavit in the court and said that it is true that Shiv Kumar Trivedi was brought to the Lanka police station on that day and he disappeared from the police station itself.  In this case, the then SSP (Senior Superintendent of Police) Amit Pathak had put five policemen on line on September 2, 2020. This included 2 sub-inspectors and 3 constables. In November 2020, the case from UP Police went to CBCID.  DNA report proves that Shiva has died More than two years have passed since the search for Shiva. According to the police, they found Shiva in many states. At many places, he also took Pradeep along. But Shiva was already dead.  During the hearing in the Allahabad High Court on April 21, the police said that on February 15, 2020, ie, two days after the police went to the police station with Shiva, a dead body was found in Jamuna Talab, Ramnagar, Varanasi.

The one the police had taken away from BHU was dead, the family was devastated after searching for two years  Advocate Saurabh Tiwari said that the arguments of the police are creating doubts Regarding the hearing on April 21, advocate Saurabh Tiwari said that he raised many questions before the court for the police. Told that according to the police the student was mentally ill. After leaving the Lanka police station, he drowned in the pond of Ramnagar. On this I kept my point and told the court why that student would go to Lanka police station 5 km in the pond or Pokhari of Ramnagar. If he had to die by drowning, then why didn't he jump into the Ganges when it would have been on his way.  The police told the court that on that day when Shiva was brought to the police station, the CCTV camera there was not working. Whereas in the reply sought from RTI, it was told that all the cameras were running. But, it has not been included in the investigation so far. One more thing is that when the student's father files a missing report in the police station, the police officers concerned with him do not do any investigation for six months. The investigation started from 16 August 2020. I raised all these questions in the court. The next hearing will be on July 14.

Due to the huge amount, he could not repay it and before the stipulated time, the Sarpanch got all his land in his name. Today Pradeep is working as a laborer to feed his family. On the other hand, Shiv's younger brother is preparing for civil services after surviving in Delhi.  How can a student seeking admission in BHU BSc become insane?
