The Lakhimpur Kheri violence case was heard in the Supreme Court again today.

The Lakhimpur Kheri violence case was heard in the Supreme Court again today. Harish Salve appeared in court on behalf of the Uttar Pradesh government. Chief Justice NV Raman has slammed the Uttar Pradesh government in the hearing. Meanwhile, the Chief Justice questioned the Uttar Pradesh government as to why the accused in the murder case was being treated differently. So, when Harish Salve had asked the court to serve the notice, we did not issue the notice. "We had asked for a status report," the court said. Salve also informed the court that the status report has been filed by the Yogi government.

During the hearing, the Chief Justice said that a very serious case has been registered against the main accused and he has not appeared in court. "We have again issued a notice to him and asked him to be present at 11 am tomorrow," Salve said. If Mishra does not show up, the law will do its job. The postmortem report also said the dead were not shot, so a notice was served on the accused, he said.
At this time, we are not satisfied with the Uttar Pradesh government's investigation into the Lakhimpur violence case. Stating that the state government should take drastic steps, the apex court directed to hand over the investigation to another body and asked what other body could investigate. The next hearing in the case is likely to be held after the Dussehra holiday. Eight people have been killed in violence in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday. A case has been registered against Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra.
