Lakhimpur Kheri Violence: After more than 11 hours of interrogations, Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra's son Ashish Mishra was arrested late on Saturday in connection with the October 3 Lakhimpur Kheri violence. The development comes a day after the Supreme Court had expressed dissatisfaction over the state government's action in the case. Mishra appeared before the SIT at around 10.30 AM after the second summons was served to him the previous day when he did not turn up for interrogation. He was arrested at around 11 PM after being grilled by the SIT at the crime branch office in the Police Lines. Ashish Mishra was named in an FIR following allegations that he was in one of the vehicles that mowed down four farmers protesting over UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya's visit last Sunday. Two BJP workers and their driver were allegedly lynched by angry farmers in the incident. Local journalist Raman Kashyap also died in the violence, which has triggered a political storm and put the BJP government on the back foot in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

    Lakhimpur Kheri LIVE: Arrest made only after SC's intervention, says BSP

    Slamming the delay in the arrest of Ashish Mishra, accused of killing farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri, BSP National Spokesperson Sudhindra Bhadoria on Sunday said that the arrest in the case was only made after the intervention of the Supreme Court. Bhadoria said that if the Bahujan Samaj Party had a government in Uttar Pradesh, there would have been no such delay and that today 'goonda raj' is prevailing under the rule of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

    "I would also like to say that it was a very delayed arrest. I understand that when the Hon'ble Supreme Court intervened and took cognizance of this matter, only then the questioning and arrest were made in the matter."

    "In this case, if the Bahujan Samaj Party had a government in Uttar Pradesh, there would have been no such delay. In Mayawati's rule, no person, whether from outside or within the party, would have been spared if they violated the law," said Bhadoria.

    Lakhimpur Kheri LIVE: Cong, Akalis trying to 'hijack' farmers' agitation, says Tarun Chugh

    Chugh said that the Uttar Pradesh government has registered criminal cases in connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri violence and instituted a judicial commission under a retired high court judge. So in this situation, it is only but "cheap politics" that political parties are making a beeline for Lakhimpur Kheri just to "pay lip service" to farmers, he said.

    Chugh said that the UP government has stood firmly by the affected families and has assured them all help, following which they withdrew their agitation.

    On the other hand, he said, political parties like the Congress and the Shiromani Akali Dal, after having failed to do anything for the welfare of farmers when they were in power, are now "faking sympathy" for them.
