Agreement reached at Lakhimpur, Rs 45 lakh compensation, judicial probe ordered
Lakhimpur Kheri, An agreement was reached between protesting farmers and administration in Lakhimpur Kheri, after discussions were held between farmer leaders, families of the deceased farmers and the administration which agreed for a judicial probe, and promised action against the guilty.

A day after four farmers were allegedly crushed to death by vehicles belonging to the convoy of Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra, farmers were sitting on a protest with the bodies on Monday.

Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait and others held discussions with the local police officials, which promised action against those found guilty.

A police official, after talks with the farmers, announced that an FIR has been registered, and a judicial probe of the incident would be done under a retired judge of the High Court.

Rs 45 lakh compensation would be given to the families of the deceased, and job would be provided to one person in their families. Those injured would get a compensation of Rs 10 lakh each.

Asked about Opposition leaders not being allowed to visit, the Police official said it was decided that only farmer leaders would be allowed, and not political leaders in view of law and order situation.

Protests were held at several locations across the country against the incident. Samyukt Kisan Morcha said protests were held in Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Odisha, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, and West Bengal along with some other states.

The statement also said that while FIRs have been lodged against Ashish Mishra and 15 others, no arrests have been made.

Thousands of farmers poured into Tikunia today, at the site of the violent incidents, where the bodies of the martyrs were kept, and negotiations held with the administration.

The bodies of the four farmers had been kept in an overnight vigil by hundreds of farmers and their families in Tikunia's college ground.

The SKM also said that farmer leaders like Gurnam Singh Chaduni and Buta Singh Burjgill were being prevented from reaching Lakhimpur Kheri.

On Sunday, farmers had gathered to protest against the visit of Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra, and Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya. Mishra's route was changed because of the protests.

Farmers have alleged that Ashish Mishra, son of the MoS, and other supporters crushed farmers under their vehicles without any provocation as they were leaving from the protest site.

The Minister has meanwhile said that stones were pelted at the convoy, and has also said that his son was not present at the spot.

While four farmers died, four people who were in the SUVs that allegedly crushed farmers also died. Angry farmers also set two vehicles to fire.

Police said an FIR has been registered against 14 people, including Ashish Mishra, in connection with the death of farmers. Case has been registered under 302, 120B, and 147 of the IPC on the complaint of the farmers.

A counter FIR has also been lodged against the farmers by the BJP leaders.
