Akash’s lawyers contended that he had been falsely implicated with an aim to sully his image. In another case for which he was arrested while in judicial custody on Thursday, Akash has been charged under section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code. He had led a protest on June 4 against power cuts without taking the permission from the authorities.

Besides, if the farmers are to be believed their crops yield has increased up to 30 percent after the implementation of ‘Honey Mission’,” he said, adding, “Enthused with our performance, the MSME Minister Nitin Gadkari has given us the target to distribute other 2 lakh bee-boxes in this financial year, which will be proved as a boon to the farmers.”
