What did farmer leader Rakesh Tikait say?
Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has reacted after getting bail from the Supreme Court. He asked whether these accused would be thrown back after eight weeks. He said that if the Supreme Court is saying that his family has not threatened anyone and his behavior has been good, then it is an absurd argument.
Tikait said that everyone should give such an argument. He said that considering these arguments in other 302 cases also, bail should be granted in murder cases.
What is the whole matter?
On 3 October 2021, 8 people were allegedly run over by a vehicle at Tikunia in Lakhimpur Kheri. The farmers allege that Ashish Mishra was sitting in the vehicle that ran over the farmers. On the basis of this allegation, the police arrested Ashish Mishra on the charge of murder.
