Lakhimpur violence case: Ashish Mishra denied bail, one more sent to police custody
Ashish Mishra, who was arrested on October 9 by the special investigation team after 12 hours of questioning, had been sent to three days in police custody from Tuesday.
The court also remanded Shekhar Bharti, arrested on Tuesday, in police custody for three days.
The investigators had summoned Das for questioning in connection with the October 3 violence that had left eight people, including four farmers, dead.
Das is the nephew of former minister Akhilesh Das and the black SUV which allegedly knocked down the four farmers is said to be owned by him.
At around 11 AM, Das along with a team of lawyers arrived at the crime branch office in the reserved police lines area, the police said.
On Tuesday, Das and one other identified as Latif had moved an application for surrender before the chief judicial magistrate.
