New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday extended the interim bail of Ashish Mishra till July 11 in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case.
A bench of Justices Surya Kant and JK Maheshwari while adjourning the matter said that the interim order in the matter will be continued in the matter till July 11.
Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the victim's family in the matter urged the top court to direct daily proceedings in the trial court.
However, the court said that it may not be possible as the trial court may be dealing with other such cases.
But the Bhushan insisted by saying that such cases go on for twenty years and till that many witnesses related to the case died.
The top court said that this is the reason they have kept the matter pending.
On January 25, the top court granted interim bail for eight weeks to Ashish Mishra and imposed various conditions.
The Supreme Court directed Ashish Mishra that during the period of his interim bail of eight weeks, he shall not stay in the State of Uttar Pradesh or in the NCT of Delhi. (with ANI inputs)
