Uttar Pradesh Law Minister Brajesh Pathak on Wednesday, 13 October, went to meet the families of Hari Om and Shubham Mishra, the two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers who had died in the incident on 3 October in Lakhimpur Kheri.

Om was driving one of the cars in the convoy in Lakhimpur that rushed into the farmers.

Eight people, including four farmers, had died in the incident and the Uttar Pradesh police have so far arrested four people including MoS Ajay Misra's son Ashish Misra, the main accused in the case.

Pathak is the first BJP leader to visit the families, who have complained that no one from BJP has visited them to offer condolences, reported IANS.

The minister spent time with the families, offered his condolences and assured them that he would take care of them in future too, the report said.

Last week, assuring that people involved in the incident will be punished, the state law minister had said that the matter is sub judice and asked Opposition parties to not politicise the incident, reported news agency ANI.
