On behalf of Ashish Mishra, Senior Counsel GD Chaturvedi strongly said that his client was not driving the SUV which ran over on 3rd October, last year.

This bail matter was taken in the Allahabad High Court after this plea was earlier denied by the session’s court of Lakhimpur Kheri. In the previous month, after hearing the plea, The Allahabad High Court overturned its order.

Last year, 3rd October, Ashish Mishra was driving his own four wheeler which forced and went on farmers and a journalist immediately killed four farmers and that journalist died in Lakhimpur Kheri violence those farmers who died due to that incident at that time were on huge protest against three controversial farm laws. Few days later he was arrested.

There's strong evidence from the videos that showed cruelty that one big SUV ran over the farmers and crushed them with full speed. 8 civilians were killed in the disaster on the Same day. Immediately after the death of four farmers and a local journalist, clashes went high between two more farmers and two political workers got killed.

Today’s bail order became controversial as its the first phase of election started in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Majority of the voters in this phase are farmers.
