Lakhimpur Kheri Incident: Case of Violence reaches Supreme Court, Petition filed

The case of violence in Lakhimpur Kheri on October 3 has now reached the Supreme Court. A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court regarding this matter, in which it has been said that in connection with the incident in Lakhimpur Kheri during the farmers' protest in Uttar Pradesh on October 3, the Ministry of Home Affairs and Police should be directed to register an FIR. Ministers involved in this matter should be punished.

Appealed to the CBI to conduct a judicial inquiry

According to media reports, the Supreme Court has written a letter to the Chief Justice regarding this matter. Advocates Shivkumar Tripathi and CS Panda have written a letter to Chief Justice NV Ramana. In this, both the lawyers have appealed to the CBI to conduct a judicial inquiry into the incident under the supervision of the Supreme Court.

It is written in the letter that it has also been said in the media reports that the farmers' protest was peaceful regarding their demands. But, taking such action on demonstration is also a violation of human rights. This can be also a blow to the democratic process.

A high-level inquiry should be conducted

In a letter written to the Chief Justice, an appeal has been made to register an FIR. Also, the accused minister's son has also been demanded to be punished. Along with this, action has also been taken against the guilty officials and the minister and his relatives involved in the incident. It has been said in the petition that the court should order a time-bound investigation.

An agency like CBI should also be included in the investigation.  A high-level inquiry should be conducted under its supervision in the matter. Apart from this, orders should be issued to the Union Home Ministry to register an FIR.
