The Uttar Pradesh Police said that the kidnappers killed the young technician last month, and dumped his body in the Pandu River.
There is a twitter storm running with #PresidentRuleInUP demanding a call out to the UP government claiming various series of crimes happening in Uttar Pradesh, including Sajeet Yadav case.

"The law and order situation in UP has collapsed. It is now being taken care of after common people are being killed. Be it home, road, office, no one feels safe. After Vikram Joshi, now abducted Sanjit Yadav in Kanpur," Gandhi added.
