Share on:

Today, the Supreme Court (SC) of India modified Ashish Mishra’s (prime accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri case) interim bail condition imposed as per the January 25 order by which he was prohibited from entering Delhi. A two-judge bench of the SC, Justice Dipankar Datta, and Justice Surya Kant, allowed Ashish Mishra to visit and stay in Delhi to look after his sick mother and to get treatment for his daughter. An application was filed by Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra, seeking modification of the interim bail condition stating that his mother is sick and admitted to the RML Hospital in Delhi. He also mentioned that his daughter needed treatment for leg deformities. While hearing the matter, the SC bench observed that taking a humanitarian view, it is appropriate to allow the application. The Supreme Court further clarified that the prohibition to enter the State of Uttar Pradesh except for trial will continue to operate.
