A week after farmers’ deaths, Union minister’s son arrested
LAKHIMPUR KHERI: After nearly 12 hours of intense interrogation by the special investigation team (SIT) on the Lakhimpur Kheri violence in which he has been accused of killing four farmers, Union junior home minister Ajay Mishra Teni’s son Ashish was arrested late on Saturday night. Ashish had skipped summons by the SIT on Friday, after which a second notice had been issued asking him to appear.
联邦部副部长Ajay Mishra Teni的儿子被控在Lakhimpur Kheri事件中杀害四名农民，在特别调查小组(SIT)对他进行了近12个小时的紧张审讯后，Ashish于周六晚间被捕。Ashish在周五的时候无视法庭的传唤，之后法庭又发出了要求他出庭的通知。
"He has been arrested for not cooperating with the investigation and giving evasive answers," DIG Upendra Agarwal, who is heading the SIT, said on Saturday night.
Around 10.30am, Ashish entered the Lakhimpur Kheri crime branch office by the backdoor, escorted by over 10 cops. He was accompanied by two lawyers, Avdhesh Kumar Singh and Jitendra Singh. Ashish had been asked to appear at 11am in the second notice put up outside his house on Friday. "My client has come with video evidence to show he wasn’t there (the site of the killings) that day," his counsel Singh said in the morning. They also reportedly presented 12 affidavits of people saying Ashish was not at the Banbirpur violence site that day.
As internet services were suspended again, police from neighbouring districts had been called to Lakhimpur Kheri and SSB jawans were deployed. BJP workers from across the district converged at the office in Lakhimpur city. Security around the district jail and the collectorate was suddenly stepped up in the evening.
When asked if it was preparation for arrest, ADG (law and order) Prashant Kumar had earlier in the evening told TOI that he "didn’t know". He added, "Local police have taken their own decision to maintain law and order." A senior offi al from the administration, however, said the security was in place to prepare for both scenarios. "Whether he is arrested or not, we are ready for both. We have ensured required security to maintain law and order. The decision on his arrest rests with the SIT," the offi al told TOI.
Around 11pm, Ashish was finally arrested. Police were preparing to take him before a remand magistrate at the time of filing the report.
Kindly Google Rakesh Tikait networth... It's $11 Million. He's richer than most of the middle class Indians and he calls himself a farmer. So are the so called farmers presting - they are the rich folks who are just creating noise to bring the go nment down. The real farmers are busy working on their farms not bothered with this so called farmer agitation. Jaago India Jaago!!
BJP leaders so cruel, power-hungry and liars. BJP leaders have become more cruel and harsher than British rulers. Due to so much of corrupt money and power, they have become arrogant, and mowing down farmers from behind , sitting in their luxurious SUV cars!!
govt should show some se and arrest that tikat and that guy who killed the drivers..let law be the same for all
Lol .... are you day dreaming....
Ha Ha !!!! Hundreds of people saw him there and Bhartiya Jumla Party says, he was not present there.
His Dad should be immediately sacked from his position for lying about his whereabout at the time of the in dent. BJP should lead by example and not support people like him.
Good job! There should be no discrimination and law should take its course.
His father is still a minister. How? Modi needs to wake up

Internationally the image of India takes a beating when people running the country themselves try to shield their ministers who give provocative es leading to cold blooded murders. We are making a mockery of our country's judicial and police sy em. A common man gets thrown into jail even without valid charges.
In a country if the attitude of the son of a Home minister towards police and law of sdthe land is like this only God can save this country.
Feku will prove that this criminal was in foreign offi al vacation at the time of accident. He will walk scot free because all eye witnesses would somehow meet with "accidental deaths" before court hearing.
