Chairman of the National Commission on Minority Affairs took note of suo motu Lahimpur The Hyeri incident that killed eight people, including four farmers. Sardar Iqbal Singh Lalpura wrote to the Chief Secretary of Uttar Pradesh and asked for a report within the next three days.
When contacted, Lalpura said, “It would be unfair to make any comments until I have received information from the right parties. I met with Tejinder Singh Virk, who was injured and hospitalized at Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon. I also met with his family. It was a fruitful discussion. ”
Virk is one of the farm leaders who took part in Sunday’s protest against the Center’s farm laws.
Farmers claimed that a car from a convoy owned by the son of Union Minister Ajay Mishr Teni Ashish ran over protesters in the Tikonia area. Since then, several videos of the incident have emerged. The minister denied these allegations. There is mounting pressure from opposition and civil rights groups to resign Mishra.
