BAREILLY: The police custody remand of Union minister Ajay Mishra’s son, Ashish Mishra, ended a day early after Ashish was found positive for dengue and shifted by the special investigation team (SIT) to a hospital for treatment on Saturday night. His custody with the police was supposed to end at 5 pm on Sunday. He is now under judicial custody.

Under police custody, he was detained in a lock-up, and the police had power to interrogate him to collect more evidence to further their investigation. Under judicial custody, Ashish will be placed in a district jail and would be under the custody of the magistrate. The case will now proceed in accordance with the evidence collected so far.

Ashish is the main accused in the killing of four farmers and a journalist during the October 3 violence.

He was remanded to police custody by a chief judicial magistrate on October 22. He complained of fever and was admitted to a hospital in jail at midnight on Saturday.
