Oct 06, 2021 09:35 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Bhartiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait on Tuesday gave a week’s ultimatum to the Uttar Pradesh government for arresting Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Kumar Mishra's son, accused of running his car over protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri.

Tikait said that the farmer groups will gather in Bahraich again on the day of ‘bhog’, the 13th day of mourning, and then will discuss and decide the future strategy.

Tikait, who visited the house of Gurvinder Singh, a farmer from Moharnia village killed in the Lakhimpur violence, said the minister's son was seen by many people at the spot on the fateful day.

He added that people have several videos that will come up as soon as the net is restored.

MoS (Home) Misra's son Ashish Misra alias Monu has been named in an FIR lodged at a Lakhimpur Kheri police station.

According to a report from Lakhimpur Kheri, district officials on Tuesday night handed over compensation cheques of Rs 45 lakh each to the kin of two Kheri farmers under the agreement between agitating farmers and authorities.

The deceased farmers whose kin were given the compensation cheques are Lavpreet Singh of Palia tehsil and Nakshatra Singh of Dhaurahra tehsil.
