New Delhi, February 12

The Supreme Court on Monday extended the interim bail granted to Union Minister Ajay Kumar Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra in the 2021 Lakhimpur Kheri violence case that had claimed eight lives. A Bench led by Justice Surya Kant directed the top court’s Registry to obtain a report from the trial court on the progress of the case and adjourned the matter.

Four farmers were mowed down by an SUV in Lakhimpur Kheri when those against farm laws were holding a demonstration against UP Deputy CM’s visit on October 3, 2021. In the subsequent violence, two BJP workers, a driver and a journalist were killed. It was alleged Ashish was driving one of the cars.

On January 25 last year, the top court had granted interim bail to Ashish and directed him to leave UP within a week of his release from jail. Relaxing his bail condition, the SC had on September 26, 2023, allowed Ashish to visit Delhi to take care of his ailing mother and for treatment of his daughter.
