UP govt to pay Rs 45 lakh to kin of 4 farmers killed in Lakhimpur Kheri violence

The Uttar Pradesh government has spoken with the protesting farmers and settled to pay a compensation of Rs 45 lakh to the kin of the four farmers killed.

Security personnel went to the site and inspected the area where violence broke out in Lakhimpur Kheri and eight people were killed.

A compensation of Rs 45 lakh will be paid to the families of the deceased while the injured will get Rs 10 lakh. A judicial probe will also be conducted in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence matter while one family member of the victims will be given a government job.

UP Police ADG (Law & Order) Prashant Kumar said on Monday, “The government will give Rs 45 lakhs and a government job to the families of the four farmers who died in Lakhimpur Kheri yesterday. The injured will be given Rs 10 lakhs.”

Kumar also said that an FIR will be registered based on the farmers’ complaint and a retired high court judge will probe the matter.

Prashant Kumar said, “Leaders of political parties have not been allowed to visit the district because Section 144 of CrPC is in place. However, members of farmer unions are allowed to come here.”

Eight people were killed on Sunday as violence erupted during a farmers’ protest, claiming the lives of both farmers and BJP workers in Lakhimpur Kheri.

Questions are still rising as to why Union minister Ajay Misra’s son Ashish Misra who has been accused of running over a group of protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri, resulting in four deaths is still not arrested.  Clashes following the deaths of the farmers led to four more deaths.

Four of the dead were people in the cars, who were evidently a part of a convoy of BJP workers, who had come to welcome UP Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and were allegedly thrashed to death.
