The Uttar Pradesh Police on Monday filed an FIR for murder against Ashish Mishra.
Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of several farmer unions, alleged that Ashish Mishra Teni, son of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra Teni arrived with three vehicles around the time that farmers were dispersing from their protest at the helipad and mowed down farmers and towards the end also attacked SKM leader Tajinder Singh Virk directly, by trying to run a vehicle over him.
"The arrest of young Congress presidents and comrades protesting outside the home of Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi over the demand to punish the accused in the Lakhimpur Kisan massacre is tantamount to crushing democracy," The Youth Congress said via their official Twitter handle | Twitter/@IYC
