The police official's extra-marital affair with colleague unfolded when Kripa Shankar Kannaujiya, then Circle Officer (CO) in Unnao, requested to take leave from the then Unnao Superintendent of Police (SP) for family reasons. It was assumed that he went to his home for family reasons. However, the excuse turned out to be fake when Kannaujiya's wife called the police station to find out about her husband.
