Arrested Union Minister’s Son Shifted To Hospital For Dengue Symptoms

Lucknow: Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra who was arrested for an alleged role in Lakhimpur Kheri violence, has been shifted to a government hospital following suspected dengue symptoms, police said.

Ashish Mishra was arrested on October 9, five days after four farmers and a journalist were run over by a convoy of three vehicles. One of the vehicles belongs to Union Minister of state for home, Ajay Mishra.

The killed farmers’ families alleged in their police complaint that the minister’s son was driving the SUV that crushed the farmers. Following his arrest, he was interrogated for 12 hours which came after the Supreme Court’s intervention.

“It is not confirmed as to whether he (Mishra) is suffering from dengue. His sample was sent for testing on Friday. The picture will be clear once the report comes,” Lakhimpur Kheri district jail Superintendent, PP Singh was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
