Union minister Ajay Mishra's son Ashish Mishra reached the crime branch office today, where he will appear before the SIT. Fresh summons were issued to Mishra after he failed to appear on Friday. Facing reporters at Lucknow airport, the home minister said his son Ashish Mishra could not appear before the police as he was not well but will record his statement on Saturday. Meanwhile, rejecting the SIT and the inquiry commission set up by the Uttar Pradesh government to probe the Lakhimpur Kheri violence, the SKM on Friday said that it will call for a nationwide 'rail roko' protest on October 18 if its demands are not fulfilled. The Samyukt Kisan Morcha has been demanding that Union Minister of State (MoS) for Home Ajay Mishra be sacked and his son Ashish Mishra arrested in connection with the October 3 violence in Lakhimpur Kheri.
