Sonepat, December 18
The police on Friday recovered a pistol, with which Nanaksar gurdwara head Baba Ram Singh reportedly shot himself at the Singhu border on Wednesday. The pistol belongs to one of his followers, the police have said.
The cops also recovered another letter reportedly written by the gurdwara head. The letter’s content was no different from the one found in two letters recovered earlier from the gurdwara. In all three letters, he expressed anguish at the plight of farmers who, he said, were forced to protest in the cold because of Centre’s three farm laws.
The first letter, 10 pages long, was written on December 14, two days before Baba Ram Singh reportedly committing suicide. The second letter, which went viral on social media after the incident, was written on December 16, Superintendent of Police Jashandeep Singh Randhawa said.
“The handwriting in all three letters appeared to be that of Baba Ram Singh’s,” he said.
Prima facie evidence recovered from the spot and the postmortem report indicated that Baba Ram Singh had committed suicide, the SP said, adding “as per the postmortem report, the bullet injury was found in his head and the shot was fired at point-blank range”.
“The probe is underway. The police are probing the matter from all possible angles,” the Randhawa added.
