Junior home minister Ajay Mishra Teni whose son Ashish Mishra has been named in the FIR lodged by the Uttar Pradesh Police in connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri incident met Union home minister Amit Shah at the ministry of home affairs in New Delhi's North Block.

It is not yet known whether Amit Shah summoned Ajay Mishra in the wake of the opposition demand of Ajay Mishra's resignation. However, the junior minister earlier said on Wednesday said that he was not summoned by the party high command.

As many as eight people died in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident on Sunday when two SUVs mowed down a few protesters. The minister has been refusing any connection between his son and the incident and said the driver of his car lost balance after being attacked by stone pelters. "My son wasn't there in the car. After the car was attacked, the driver was injured, the car lost its balance and ran over a few people present there. I have expressed sympathies towards those who have lost their lives. There should be an unbiased probe," he said.
