Lakhimpur Kheri violence: Allahabad HC rejects Ashish Mishra's bail plea

The Justice Krishna Pahal bench said Ashish is politically so influential that he could influence the witnesses and affect the trial. 

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of Ashish Mishra alias Monu, son of Union minister Ajay Mishra 'Teni', in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case which had left four farmers dead.
