Lakhimpur Kheri: Uttar Pradesh Law Minister Brajesh Pathak on Wednesday met the families of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker Shubham Mishra and car driver Hari Om who were killed in the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri on October 3. Last week, assuring that people involved in violence will be punished, the UP law minister had said the matter is sub judice and the opposition parties should not politicize the incident. 

Earlier on Wednesday morning, Nirmala Sitharaman said that the Lakhimpur Incidence is “absolutely condemnable,” further emphasising that there are issues of such nature happening in other parts of India equally which should be raised “when they happen and not when it suits others” because there is a BJP government in Uttar Pradesh.

As many as eight people including four farmers had died in the violence that took place on October 3. Uttar Pradesh police have so far arrested three people including Ashish Mishra.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), a body of several farmer unions, had issued a statement regarding the incident claiming the death of four farmers and alleged that one of the four farmers was shot dead by Ashish Mishra, while the others had been allegedly run over by the vehicles of his convoy.
