The wife of an executive who was shot dead by a policeman in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow last month has been given a government job.
Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma on Thursday handed over an appointment letter for a government job to Kalpana Tiwari, the wife of Apple sales representative Vivek Tiwari.
Kalpana Tiwari has been given a job in the municipal body, a government spokesman said.
"I think the probe in the case is moving in the right direction. I am satisfied with it so far," Mrs Tiwari told reporters.
Vivek Tiwari, 38, was shot dead by Constable Prashant Chaudhary in the city's Gomti Nagar Extension when he was dropping an ex-colleague home in his SUV.
Chaudhary claims he pulled the trigger as Vivek Tiwari tried to run him over thrice to kill him after being asked to stop.
A case of murder was registered against the policeman based on a complaint filed by the executive's relatives.
Chaudhary and another constable, Sandeep Kumar, were arrested as the killing provoked public outrage at a time the police in Uttar Pradesh are under scrutiny over encounters.
