A court in Lakhimpur Kheri on Monday dismissed the discharge applications of 13 accused, including Union minister Ajay Kumar Mishra's son Ashish Mishra, in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case.


District government counsel (criminal) Arvind Tripathi told PTI that the court of additional district judge-I dismissed the discharge applications and fixed December 6 as the date for framing of charges against the accused.



A charge sheet has been filed against all these accused.


On October 3, 2021, eight people were killed in Tikunia in Lakhimpur Kheri during a violence that erupted when farmers were protesting against Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya's visit to the area.

Four farmers were mowed down by an SUV, in which Ashish Mishra was seated, according to the Uttar Pradesh Police FIR.

Meanwhile, in another FIR related to the killing of two BJP workers and the driver, the court framed charges against four accused against whom the charge sheet was filed -- Vichitra Singh, Gurprit Singh, Kamaljit Singh and Gurvinder Singh.

Additional district government counsel Rajesh Kumar Singh told PTI that the court fixed December 15 as the date for submission of evidence.

Singh said charges under sections 109, 114, 504, 427, 436 of the IPC were framed against Vichitra Singh, while charges under sections 143, 147, 148, 149, 323, 325, 427, 436, 504 and 302 of the IPC were framed against the remaining three accused.
