The top court has cancelled the bail of Ashish Mishra and asked him to surrender within a week. Ashish Mishra is the son of Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni. Ashish Mishra is the main accused in the case of the car that hit the farmers in Lakhimpur. The top court had on April 4 reserved its verdict while completing the hearing after hearing arguments of all the parties in the case.
Ashish Mishra was granted bail by the Allahabad High Court, which has now been cancelled by the top court. The apex court said the Allahabad High Court did not take care of the victim's side. The victim's side was not heard. The Supreme Court has said that the high court should reconsider the bail plea of Ashish Mishra. Dushyant Dave, counsel for the aggrieved parties, requested that the Supreme Court direct the Chief Justice of the High Court to go before another bench this time. To this, the Chief Justice said that it would not be right to pass such an order. We are confident that the same judge would not want to hear the matter again.
