The alleged incident took place days after eight people, including four farmers, were killed as violence erupted in Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh on October 3 during a protest against the farm laws.
Farmer bodies have alleged that a vehicle that was part of Union minister Ajay Mishra’s convoy ran over the protestors. They have claimed that the vehicle belonged to the minister’s son Ashish Mishra.
The police have booked Ashish Mishra on multiple charges, including murder and criminal conspiracy. However, he has not been arrested yet.
