SC asked UP Government to file an updated status report in the Lakhimpur Kheri case
The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Uttar Pradesh government to file an updated status report in the case relating to the October 3 violence in Lakhimpur Kheri on October 27. Ordering the UP government to protect and record the statement of all witnesses, the Supreme Court said "this should not be an unending story".
The UP government submitted a sealed cover affidavit in the Supreme Court and informed that it has arrested 10 accused in connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri incident. Arrests were made for two crimes - one for mowing down the farmers and the other for the lynching of those connected to the car. A bench headed by CJI N V Ramana was informed that the police has also registered FIR for the lynching of three by protesting farmers.
