Lakhimpur Kheri violence: Supreme court cancels bail granted to Asish Mishra
The Supreme Court on Monday canceled the bail granted to Asish Mishra, the son of Union minister Ajay Mishra in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case, and ordered him to surrender
The Supreme Court on Monday canceled the bail granted to Asish Mishra, the son of Union minister Ajay Mishra in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case, and ordered him to surrender within one week.
The apex court set aside the Allahabad High Court order granting Asish Mishra bail and said, “the high court exceeded its jurisdiction, denied victims their right to participate in proceedings.”
On October 3 last year, a convoy of three SUVs, including a Thar owned by Ashish Mishra’s father Union minister Ajay Mishra, allegedly ran over a group of protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri.
Four farmers and a journalist were killed and several others were injured during the incident. In the violence that followed, two BJP workers and the driver of the Thar vehicle were killed.
The family members of the victim of the Lakhimpur Kheri incident had moved the Supreme Court order challenging the Allahabad High Court order, which granted bail to Asish Mishra.
