Lakhimpur Violence accused Ashish Mishra hospitalised with dengue : report

Lakhimpur Kheri (UP): Ashish Mishra, son of union minister Ajay Mishra Teni and the main accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence case hospitalised, as he is reportedly suffering from dengue.

Ashish who was taken on police remand on Friday had complained of fever and his blood reports on Saturday confirmed that he was suffering from dengue, reports IANS.

Earlier Superintendent of the Lakhimpur Kheri district jail PP Singh told the news agency PTI that whether he (Mishra) is suffering from dengue is not confirmed yet as his sample was sent for testing on Friday.
