Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): BJP Leader Sana Khan's murder has taken a political turn as Nagpur police served notice to Congress MLA Sanjay Sharma on Wednesday. Notably, Sanjay Sharma has been an MLA from BJP before 2018.

Police have also arrested a person named Ravi Shankar Yadav in the case taking the total number of accused arrested in the case to five.
Amit ran sextortion racket
It was recently revealed that the primary accused in the murder case, Amit Sahu, and his accomplice were reportedly subjecting the 35-year-old woman to abuse. The accused allegedly coerced Sana Khan into sextortion, using her as 'honey-trap' to extort money.
On Tuesday, police arrested Kamlesh Patel, a Jabalpur-based criminal in connection with the case. Kamlesh is suspected to have destroyed the deceased BJP leader’s cell phone.
Sana's body was dumped in river
Sana Khan, who was a resident of Maharashtra and the State Secretary of the BJP Minority Morcha, had travelled from Nagpur to Jabalpur. In Jabalpur, her husband Amit Sahu runs a dhaba (roadside eatery). Amit allegedly killed Sana by hitting her with sticks and dumped her body in Narmada river.
