On April 18, the Supreme Court cancelled Ashish Misra’s bail and ordered him to surrender within one week. During a hearing, the top court set aside the Allahabad High Court order granting Misra bail and said, “The high court exceeded its jurisdiction and denied victims their right to participate in proceedings.”

Ashish Misra, son of Union minister Ajay Misra, is the main accused in the violence that took place in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri region in October, 2021.

Misra was the main culprit as he ran over the farmers who were protesting against the Centre’s three farm laws ahead of an event in Tikunia. Four farmers were killed in the incident.

This led to clashes between the protesters and BJP workers, which led to the deaths of four more people, believed to be from the BJP’s convoy.
