As per the updates, farmer groups will hold ‘Rail Roko’ on October 18 and a mahapanchayat in Lucknow on October 26 to protest against the death of farmers.

Significantly, eight people, including four farmers, were killed in a violent incident on Sunday in Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh.

Farmer leader Darshan Pal said, “The incident was part of a pre-planned conspiracy and the attackers tried to terrorize the farmers.”

The farmers claimed that Ashish Mishra was in one of the vehicles, a charge denied by him and his father, who say they can produce evidence to prove that he was at an event at the time.

The farmers on Friday dismissed the SIT and the Commission of Inquiry set up by the Uttar Pradesh government to probe the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

The statement said that the SKM also welcomes the Supreme Court order asking the Uttar Pradesh Police to maintain all evidence in the case.

UP Police has issued a fresh notice to Ashish Mishra asking him to appear on Saturday by 11 am as his summons for Friday was missed.
