LUCKNOW: A forensic team was dispatched to Lakhimpur Kheri to recreate the crime scene and assist the Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by DIG Upendra Agarwal during probe into the October 3 violence which claimed eight lives.
Forensic examination of the crime scene and videos of the entire episode will be done to narrow down the location of key accused, Ashish Mishra, who was arrested on Saturday night, sources privy to the probe said.
“While the incident took place around 3.15pm, the video shown by the accused in his defence of being in a wrestling match is of around 4pm. His whereabouts from 3pm to 4pm are under scanner,” said a source privy to the probe.
The SIT sources also said that Ashish Mishra, son of Union minister Ajay Mishra, was not able to tell his whereabouts at the time of the incident.
The sources claimed that the eyewitnesses disclosed that Ashish was not present at the wrestling event.
Forensic experts will thoroughly analyse all the videos which are going viral along with other electronic evidence.

The cartridges recovered from one of the SUVs which mowed down the farmers were also sent for a forensic examination amid allegations that they were fired by the minister’s son.
The SIT team on Sunday also visited a petrol pump which was reportedly visited by Ashish. The distance between the spot and the wrestling arena was also noted by the police team.
