In a most barbaric and shocking incident, the body of a 35-year-old unidentified man was found near the main stage of protesting farmers at Singhu Border near Kundli in Haryana’s Sonipat district.
The man was brutally murdered, his left wrist chopped off and his body left hanging from a barricade near farmers’ protest site.
The incident has caused outrage among the various farmers’ groups who were initially not allowing the police to visit the protest site.
The officials of the Kundli police station were allowed to take the body to the nearby civil hospital.
According to available reports, the Nihangs beat the young man to death for allegedly on suspicion of desecrating the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikhs’ holy book.
Nihangs who are considered armed groups within the Sikh religion are being accused of murdering the young man.
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), umbrella body of over 40 farmer unions leading the agitation against the three new farm laws, distanced itself from the entire incident.
SKM leader Balbir Singh Rajewal told Indian Media,
“Nihaangs behind the incident. They have accepted it. Nihaangs have been causing trouble to us from the beginning.”
In the video, Nihangs who are carrying spears can be seen surrounding the young man’s body.
The Nihangs could be clearly heard demanding the man tell them his name and native village.
The height of barbarity and cold-bloodedness can be seen as none of the men in the video make any move to help the young man.
Earlier this year in March, two police officers were seriously injured in a brutal incident in Sur Singh village of Punjab’s Tarn Taran district.
According to police, this confrontation had erupted after police received information that two Nihangs had entered the area after carrying out a murder in Maharashtra.
In this incident, the Nihangs attacked the cops and were shot dead eventually.
The Kundli police have not yet commented on the gruesome incident that has just happened at Singhu border.
However, this incident has taken the social media by storm.
As always people in India are hopeful that the really perpetrators will be soon arrested by the police. However, they are asking who will bring to justice those masterminds who have enabled this lawlessness under the ruse of farmers’ protest?
