Supreme Court to continue hearing today the PIL on the #Lakhmipurkheri incident.

In the last hearing, Supreme Court observed that it was getting the impression that the Uttar Pradesh Police was "dragging its feet" in its investigation into the Lakhimpur Kheri violence of October 3, which claimed the lives of 8 people, four of them being farmers protesters who were allegedly mowed down by the vehicles in the convoy of Ashish Mishra, the son of Union Minister and BJP MP Ajay Kumar Mishra.

The bench pointed out that the Special Investigation Team will have to identify the vulnerable witnesses and afford them protection and get their statements recorded under Section 164 CrPC, as it will have more evidentiary value.
