Was property dispute the cause of the death of 70-year-old Gopi Kashyap?

The Lucknow Police told Dainik Jagran that a property dispute could be a cause of the murder. ADCP Abdi said that Kashyap's son-in-law was not pleased with his decision over the distribution of his land as he had given more share to some of his daughters.

The ADCP further told Dainik Jagran that this could be the cause of the murder. Abdi said that the Lucknow Police is currently questioning Kashyap's son-in-law and grandson and will take further action as and when required.
