As per news report of NDTV, "Ashish has surrendered in the court. We were given a week's time but as Monday was the last day, he surrendered a day ahead," Ashish Mishra's counsel Awadesh Singh told news agency PTI. Jail Superintendent PP Singh said he will be kept in a separate barrack at the jail due to security reasons. Ashish Mishra is accused of running over farmers with an SUV during a protest demonstration against the now-repealed contentious farm laws. He has been charged with the murder of farmers and a journalist after he allegedly ran over them with his vehicle.  Ashish Mishra was granted bail by the Allahabad High Court in February this year. The Supreme Court last week cancelled his bail and has allowed him to approach the Allahabad High Court again.
