Uttar Pradesh Authorities Inspector General, Lakshmi Singh, on Thursday stated that the cops are on the lookout for Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni’s boy, Ashish Mishra, and will apprehend him as soon as possible over Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

The police, till now, had maintained that they were investigating the Lakhimpur Kheri event and would take essential action at the appropriate time. Lakshmi Singh said on Thursday that a search is on to arrest Ashish Mishra, who has actually been reserved for murder charges in the Lakhimpur Kheri FIR.

The Supreme Court used up the case on Thursday, and asked the state federal government to notify it who were called in the FIR and if they had actually been jailed or not.

The FIR declares that Ashish Mishra had actually opened fire at the objecting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri and was also present in the cars and truck that ran over the farmers.

“The videos and information that went viral on social networks have actually also been sought to further the probe,” Singh said. Ashish Mishra, on the other hand, had told reporters that, “I was at Banwaripur since 9 am till the end of the occasion.

“Accusations versus me are entirely baseless and I demand judicial inquiry of this matter and culprits need to get punished.” On Sunday, the farmers had actually gathered at the sports ground of the Maharaja Agrasen Inter-College to peacefully oppose versus the centre’s three farm laws.

They had actually planned to show black flags to the Union Minister and Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, who existed to participate in an occasion.

While the farmers were objecting, Ashish Mishra’s automobile presumably ran them over in high speed, eliminating 4 farmers on the spot. Later on, violence broke out at the area in Lakhimpur Kheri, leading to four more deaths.
