Ashish Mishra, son of Union’s Minister of State for Home Affairs, Ajay Mishra, has finally been arrested in a case of killing a farmer in a car accident at Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh, India. This information was given in the report of NDTV online on Sunday.
Ashish was arrested after more than 12 hours of interrogation at Lakhimpur Kheri on Saturday. Police said Ashish tried to avoid answering during questioning. He did not cooperate in the interrogation.
Four farmers were killed in a road accident at Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday. It was alleged that Ashish killed the farmers in a mixed car crash. However, he and his father denied the allegations. Ashish was arrested last night, five days after a case was registered in connection with the murder of a farmer.
The charges against Ashis were that he was to be arrested immediately. But his arrest was being delayed. So the question arises, because of the Union’s Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay, his son Ashish is being favored. He did not respond to police even a day before his arrest.
According to top Uttar Pradesh police sources, he could not give a clear explanation as to where Ashis was at the time of the car crash on Sunday.
The Supreme Court of India has strongly criticized the state government in its investigation into the Lakhimpur Kheri incident. On Friday, the second day of the hearing in the case, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court NV Ramna expressed strong dissatisfaction, saying the way police usually work in normal cases, the same should be done in this case as well. Otherwise, action will be taken if the court opens after Dussehra.
Uttar Pradesh police arrested Ashish shortly after the Indian Supreme Court fired.
