Lakhimpur Kheri Case: In UP Court, the prosecution files objections to Ashish Mishra’s application for release

On Tuesday, the prosecution filed objections to Ashish Mishra’s discharge motion before the district and sessions judge’s court here. Mishra is the primary culprit in the Tikunia violence case. Five other co-accused — Ankit Das, Latif alias Kale, Satyam Tripathi, Shekhar Bharti, and Nandan Singh Bisht — had their discharge papers filed in the court of District and Sessions Judge Mukesh Mishra on Monday, according to District Government Counsel (DGC) Criminal Arvind Tripathi. According to Tripathi, the prosecution requested time to file its objections to the five aforementioned accused’s discharge applications.

According to the DGC, the court has set May 24 as the next date of hearing in the case. Earlier, during the trial of the case, Ashish Mishra, who is in jail alongside 12 co-accused in connection with the murders of four farmers and a journalist at Tikunia in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district on October 3 last year, was produced in court amid strong police security.

The other defendants were also taken to court to testify throughout the trial. On that awful day, a speeding automobile mowed down four farmers and a journalist. An enraged mob also killed two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) officials and a vehicle driver in the ensuing mayhem.

In connection with the violence, two FIRs were filed. Ashish Mishra, the son of Union minister Ajay Mishra, was named in the first FIR (number 219), which dealt with the deaths of the four farmers and the journalist, while the subsequent FIR (number 220), which dealt with the deaths of the two BJP workers and the driver, was filed against unidentified assailants.

The incident’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) has filed chargesheets in court in connection with both FIRs. In its chargesheet in connection with FIR number 219, the SIT named 14 people as suspects, including Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra, while in FIR number 220, it implicated four people.

The district and sessions courts are now hearing both cases.
