Lakhimpur Kheri violence: Non-cooperation, evasive replies. Here’s what led to Ashish Mishra’s arrest
Union Minister of State for House Ajay Mishra’s kid Ashish Mishra was detained at 10:50 pm on Saturday and sent out to the Lakhimpur prison around 1 am on Sunday after 12 hours of questioning in connection with the October 3 Lakhimpur Kheri violence. Ashish Mishra was named in an FIR following accusations that he was in among the cars that slaughtered four farmers opposing over UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya’s go to last Sunday. Farmer leaders and opposition parties had actually been requiring Mishra’s arrest however the minister and his child had rejected the accusations.
Two BJP employees and their motorist were supposedly lynched by angry farmers in the incident. Regional journalist Raman Kashyap also died in the violence, which has actually activated a political storm and put the BJP government on the back foot in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.
