New Delhi, October 4
Even as a murder case has been registered against Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra, and 13 others in connection with the Lakhimpur violence that claimed lives of eight persons, including four farmers, a counter FIR has also been registered against a few agitating farmers.
The first FIR has been registered under Section 302 (murder), Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and Section 147 (rioting) of the Indian Penal Code.
Sources said the counter FIR, also under the same sections of the IPC, was filed on the complaint of family members of BJP workers killed in the incident. The FIR was lodged against Amandeep Singh Sindhu, Mahendra Singh, Jejender Singh Virk and some unknown persons at Lakhimpur Kheri police station, the sources said. — TNS
