LAKHIMPUR KHERI: At least six people were killed after violence broke out in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district ahead of deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya’s visit at Tikonia-Banbirpur Road on Sunday.
Four persons died on the spot while two others were declared dead at the hospital.
The incident occurred when two SUVs allegedly ploughed into a group of anti-farm law protesters demonstrating against Maurya’s visit.
Later, angry protesters allegedly forced the two vehicles to stop and set them on fire.
The farmers had assembled there to oppose Maurya’s visit to Banbirpur, the native village of Khiri MP and Union minister of state for home Ajay Kumar Mishra.
Several journalists were also reported to have sustained injuries in the incident.
Meanwhile, in view of the violence, Maurya’s visit to Banbirpur village has been cancelled.
