Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni’s son Ashish Mishra alias Monu, accused of massacre of farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri, UP, could not give any proof of his presence for one hour. At the time of this accident in Tikunia, where he was, neither could he tell anything, nor could he give any photo-video. Monu is on three-day police remand. Wednesday is the second day of his remand.
Missing the presence of 2.30 to 3.30 pm
The SIT, which is probing this entire matter, has got all the photo-videos of Monu’s presence from morning till evening. This pen drive has been given by Monu through his advocate Awadhesh Kumar Singh to the SIT. Where was the morning, when did he go to the riot, when did he get oil filled in the car… Monu has given proof of this through all the photo-videos and CCTV footage. Where Monu lived between 2.30 pm and 3.30 pm, he has not been able to give any proof of this. This is the same time when the Thar accident happened in Tikunia.
Petrol pump footage solid evidence
Sources associated with the SIT said, Monu must have said orally that he was not at the accident site. But when the SIT asked him for his proof, he could not provide anything. In the presence of 24 hours, there is no evidence of only one hour when the accident took place. This raised the suspicion of the SIT on the minister’s son and he was arrested. The SIT has got the CCTV footage of a petrol pump. In this, Monu is sitting in Thar, where oil was being filled.
SIT has said – Monu is not cooperating us
It is worth noting that this is the same Thar, due to which four farmers and a journalist were crushed to death. Overall, Monu Mishra is getting trapped in the police trap due to lack of evidence for an hour. The SIT has already said that Monu Mishra is not cooperating with us.
Advocate said – we gave all the evidence to the SIT
Awadhesh Kumar Singh, the advocate of accused Ashish Mishra alias Monu in this whole case, claimed that there is no such evidence on the SIT to prove that Ashish Mishra was present at the spot. We have given all the evidence related to this to the SIT. Despite this, the SIT saying that we are not corporate is wrong.
Focus on gathering evidence in the first 15 days of investigation
A source close to the SIT said that right now our focus is only on gathering evidence. For the first 15 days, we will collect evidence. Because after 15 days no proof will come. Every item related to this case is being caesarised. For this, a forensic team stays with the SIT most of the time.
