Lakhimpur Kheri Incident

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Mr Ajay Mishra Teni had issued an open threat to farmer leaders in a public meeting in October 2021.

A large number of farmers had assembled in Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh for a black flag protest against him for the open threat issued against farmer leaders in a public meeting.

In a brutal and inhuman attack on peacefully protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri of Uttar Pradesh, a convoy of vehicles associated with BJP’s Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra Teni, his son, his uncle and other goons ran over several protestors.

It is reported that one of the farmers was shot dead by the son of the Union MoS Ajay Mishra Teni, Ashish (Monu) Mishra. At least two other farmers were killed in the incident (one on the spot, and another in a hospital), and around ten others injured seriously. Terai Kisan Sanghatan’s leader, and SKM leader Tajinder Singh Virk has also been injured. More details about the deceased and injured are awaited.

Eight people were killed on October 3 after violence erupted during a farmers’ protest, claiming the lives of farmers and BJP workers ahead of a visit to Lakhimpur by Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya. Four of the dead were people in cars that were part of a convoy of BJP workers who had come to welcome the UP minister. The four others were farmers.
