The BJP in Uttar Pradesh is now distancing itself from Ashish Mishra “Monu”, as police believe the Union minister’s son was present in the convoy of cars where the incident took place in Lakhimpur Kheri. UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh’s statement to the party cadre on Sunday that “we have not come in politics to crush anyone under an SUV” is being viewed in a similar fashion. At the same time, other party leaders are also saying that the law should take its course against the minister’s son.
This comes at a time when Ashish could not produce any electronic evidence to prove to the police that he was at a wrestling venue in his village for an hour at the time of the incident last week. This is the main reason for his arrest. Meanwhile, on Monday, prosecution lawyer SP Yadav told that Ashish Mishra has been sent on three-day police remand with conditions.
According to News18, according to the officials associated with the investigation, it is very important to find out where Ashish was at the time of the incident in Lakhmipur for an hour between 2.30 pm and 3.30 pm. The answer to this crucial question is complicated with conflicting claims, but police now believe he was at the scene.
Interestingly, no calls were received or made from Ashish’s phone during that hour. Ashish’s phone is now with the UP Police. The site of the incident is about 4-5 kms from Ashish’s village, where he has claimed to be present in the wrestling competition for the whole day.
However, sources close to the investigation say that Ashish had left the wrestling venue in his Thar car at around 2 pm, but Ashish has said that at that time he had gone to his house in the same village where a food inspector followed the security protocol. The chief guest had come to examine the food being eaten by Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya.
The police are checking the CCTV footage installed on the way to the wrestling venue and the incident site to investigate these claims. Ashish has produced affidavits of about 10 villagers and more than a dozen videos in a pen drive citing his presence in the entire village, but the police is still not satisfied with this.
Moreover, BJP worker Sumit Jaiswal, the main complainant in the counter-FIR against the farmers, has now disappeared. Jaiswal was also present in the Thar who crushed the four farmers.
A senior UP Police official told News18 that a reward may be announced soon for the capture of Jaiswal and the son of a former Congress minister, who is said to be present in the Fortuner vehicle behind the Thar vehicle. Was. A senior UP Police official said, “If these people are caught to prove Ashish’s presence, they will face Ashish.”
