Lakhimpur violence: Minister’s son in 3 days remand

Bareilly, Oct. 11: UP Police were on Monday granted three days’ remand of Union minister Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish, who was arrested five days after being booked for killing four farmers at Banbirpur in Lakhimpur Kheri on October 3. He was later booked for killing a journalist at the site as well. Police had sought 14 days’ remand to question him.

“The identified accused Ashish Mishra, aka Monu, was arrested on October 9 and sent to the district jail. Police requested the court for a 14-day remand to investigate all evidence in the case. The court of the chief judicial magistrate, Lakhimpur Kheri, on October 11 granted three days’ police custody remand beginning on October 12,” senior prosecution officer SP Yadav said on Monday evening.

A person accused of a crime can be on police remand — where cops can take him to various locations pertinent for investigation, compare notes and question him — while being in judicial custody.

Lakhimpur: Priyanka Gandhi To Pay Last Respects Today To Farmers Killed In UP

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will again head to Lakhimpur Kheri today to participate in the “antim ardas (final rites)” prayers of the protesting farmers who were mowed down in the Uttar Pradesh district earlier this month.

Heavy barricading and police checks were visible on the Lucknow-Sitapur-Lakhimpur highway.

“Rahul Gandhi Go Back, Priyanka Gandhi Go Back” banners were also sighted along the highway. While some of the banners mentioned who had put them up, others appeared to have vague details about this aspect. All banners took digs at the Congress, saying ‘people’ don’t want “fake sympathy”.

Preparations for the final prayers are underway at a field, away from the spot where the violence took place in Tikonia village of Lakhimpur Kehri in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

Ashish Mishra – son of Union Minister of State for home, Ajay Mishra – now arrested, is accused of running his SUV over slogan-shouting farmers in the district on October 3. Eight people, including four farmers, were killed in the incident.
