After being detained by the UP Police for about 18 hours, the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Punjab delegation was released on Wednesday and allowed to meet the families of farmers killed in Lakhimpur Kheri.

The delegation, led by AAP Punjab co-incharge Raghav Chadha and Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema, first visited the house of Nachhatar Singh at Dhaurahra village in Lakhimpur Kheri. It also shared grief with the family of slain local journalist Raman Kashyap. Chadha said he made the family members of the victim talk to AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal on the phone.

“CM Arvind Kejriwal has assured all possible legal and financial assistance to all aggrieved farming families,” Chadha said. — TNS
