The government has told the Rajya Sabha that the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, in which eight people lost their lives, is sub judice and there is no question of discussion on the issue in the House. This comes as the Opposition members shot off notices over the latest developments in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, too, moved an adjournment notice in Lok Sabha demanding the removal of Minster of State for Home Ajay Misra, whose son is an accused in the case.
In his notice, Rahul Gandhi has sought for adjourning the business of the House and demanded that the Special Investigation Team’s (SIT) report on the Lakhimpur Kheri incident be taken up for discussion.
“The UP Police SIT report has highlighted that massacre of farmers at Lakhimpur was a pre-planned conspiracy and not a negligent act. The SIT has recommended for the modification of the charges against all the accused,” the Congress leader said in his notice submitted to the Lok Sabha secretary general.
“The government should immediately sack the MoS, Home Affairs, Ajay Kumar Mishra, and ensure that justice is delivered to the families of the victims,” Gandhi said in his notice.
