Supreme Court extends Ashish Mishra’s interim bail in Lakhimpur Kheri violence case

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday extended the interim bail of Ashish Mishra, son of Union minister Ajay Kumar Mishra, in the 2021 Lakhimpur Kheri violence case. Eight people were killed in the violence.

A bench of Justices Surya Kant and K V Vishwanathan directed the apex court register to seek a report from the trial court on the progress of the case and adjourned the hearing.

On September 26 last year, the Supreme Court had relaxed the bail conditions of Ashish Mishra, the prime accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case, so that he can go to the National Capital Region (NCR) for the care of his ailing mother and treatment of his daughter.
