Ayush, 30, son of BJP MP Kaushal Kishore from Mohanlalganj constituency, was shot at in the Madiyaon area around 2 am on Wednesday, 3 March. However, police have said that it appears that the attack was staged and that the man had asked his brother-in-law to shoot at him.

He was rushed to the hospital after the attack and was discharged after receiving first-aid, as reported by NDTV. According to Scroll.in, the police have recovered a licensed pistol that was used in the shooting.

"“Preliminary probe conducted by police found that Ayush had asked his brother-in-law, Adarsh, to open fire on him.”" - Lucknow Police Commissioner DK Thakur to PTI

Thakur said, “Adarsh admitted that he fired at Ayush to implicate some persons.” He further added that an investigation was underway.

Though an FIR is yet to be registered in the case, Thakur said, “We will do it as the weapon used in the act has been recovered.”

The BJP MP told reporters that his son did not name anyone when he was at the hospital. Ayush only said that he had gone out with his brother-in-law when the attack took place, according to Kishore.

"“Ayush and Adarsh know better what they are saying. They did not have enmity with anyone. Why will they get someone implicated, I have no idea.”" - BJP MP Kaushal Kishore
