Lakhimpur violence: Allahabad High Court grants bail to Ashish Mishra

On Thursday, the Allahabad High Court granted bail to Ashish Mishra, the son of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Ajay Mishra ‘Teni,’ one of the main suspects in the Lakhimpur Kheri riots case.

The news: The bail was granted on the same day that the first phase of polling in Uttar Pradesh began. In the first phase, voters, mostly from the farm-dominated western half of the state, exercised their right to vote.
What happened: On October 9, 2021, Ashish was apprehended in the Lakhimpur Kheri case, in which at least four farmers and a journalist were slain during a protest against the now-defunct farm rules.

  • In the chargesheet submitted by Special Investigation (SIT) in the incident on October 3, Ashish Mishra was named as the main accused.
  • The four farmers were crushed to death under the wheels of a convoy of cars, including one belonging to the Union Minister, in an act that shook the nation.
  • The truck ploughed over a group of farmers protesting Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya’s visit to Teni’s hometown for a programme. Teni is a Kheri-based BJP MP in his second term.
  • Teni’s expulsion from the Union ministry has been demanded by opposition parties over the matter.
  • Mishra is one of Lakhimpur Kheri’s most powerful leaders. After spearheading the movement in a rape and murder case in 2011, his influence expanded significantly. He was elected as the MLA for Nighasan the following year. He was elected MP from Lakhimpur Kheri in 2014 and 2019, and he was also appointed as a union minister.

Palia, Nighasan, Lakhimpur, Srinagar, and Gola Gokarna Nath Assembly seats make up his parliamentary constituency. In 2017, the BJP won all five seats.
Despite being the MP for Lakhimpur, he is not actively campaigning for the Assembly elections since the BJP does not want to compromise its chances by utilising him, according to sources mentioned in a PTI article.
