Lakhimpur Kheri violence LIVE Updates: The Supreme Court, on Thursday, asked the Uttar Pradesh government to file a status report regarding the accused in the Lakhimpur violence case and whether any action had been taken against them. “We need to know who are the accused against whom you have registered FIR and whether you have arrested them or not,” the court said.
"Grievance is you are not properly investigating," the apex court told UP's BJP government.
The court will continue hearing the matter Friday.
Earlier the court said it is hearing the deaths of eight people in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district in response to a public interest litigation. It had not taken up the matter on its own.
“I think there is a communication problem,” Chief Justice N V Ramana was quoted as saying on Thursday in media reports. The Uttar Pradesh government has constituted separately a one-member commission led by a former high court judge to probe the deaths during farmer protests on Sunday.
Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra yesterday met the family of a 19-year-old man who died when he was run over by an SUV allegedly driven by Union Minister Ajay Mishra's son on Sunday. The state's BJP government has allowed people in groups of five to visit Lakhimpur Kheri.
