ALLAHABAD: Today, The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court rejected the bail application of Union minister Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra. He is accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case.
Ashish has been lodged in jail since he surrendered in April.
Ashish is accused of running over four farmers and a journalist with an SUV during a farmers’ protest at Tikonia Crossing in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri in October last year. On July 15, the Lucknow bench reserved its order in the case after completing the recording of statements.
Additional Advocate General Vinod Kumar Shahi said – “Justice Krishan Pahal on Tuesday passed the order and rejected the bail application of Ashish Mishra. I am yet to go through the detailed order,”.
The bench had granted bail to Ashish in the case on February 10 this year. Following this, the victims’ relatives moved the Supreme Court seeking its cancellation.
