New Delhi: Ajay Mishra Teni on Wednesday said his son Ashish Mishra alias Monu was not sitting in the car that mowed down protesting farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district.
He reiterated that the car lost balance after being attacked by the protestors and ran over a few people present there.
Ajay Mishra Teni said, “My son was not there in the car. He was at the venue of the event. There is enough evidence that the stones were pelted which injured the driver. The driver was unconscious, the car lost its balance and ran over a few people present there.”
The MoS alleged that the driver was lynched and the mob later set the car on the fire. “I was not present at the site. I am describing the incident as seen in the videos.
One of our party workers has also given his statement. He has said that the people in the car ran to save their lives after the car was attacked. Even his cell phone was left behind in the car.”
