Lakhimpur Kheri: Hearing in Ashish Mishra remand case concludes, order soon

New Delhi: A court in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri on Monday reserved its order on the police remand of Ashish Mishra in connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri violence that claimed the lives of eight people, including four farmers, on October 3.

The court has reserved its order in the matter and is expected to deliver its verdict. The SIT has sought 14 days remand of Ashish Mishra.

Ashish Mishra, who has been booked for murder, was arrested on Saturday after 12 hours of interrogation by the Crime Branch of Uttar Pradesh Police and was later sent to judicial custody. He is son of Union Minister of State (MoS) for Home Ajay Mishra Teni.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of several farmer unions, alleged that Ashish Mishra Teni, son of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra Teni arrived with three vehicles around the time that farmers were dispersing from their protest at the helipad and mowed down farmers and towards the end also attacked SKM leader Tajinder Singh Virk directly, by trying to run a vehicle over him. 

However, Ashish Mishra refuted SKM’s allegations and said he was not present at the spot where the incident took place.
