Karnal, September 20

Fulfilling the promise made to the protesting farmer leaders, the government has given two clerical jobs to the family members of the deceased farmer, Sushil Kajal, at the Karnal co-operative sugar mill on DC rates.

According to farmers, Kajal was among the farmers who received injuries during the police lathicharge on August 28 and succumbed to those injuries later that day.

Lathicharge: DC submits report

Karnal DC Nishant Kumar Yadav has submitted his report on the lathicharge incident to the Chief Secretary

The report is yet to be filed to the National Human Rights Commission

The DC has not disclosed the findings of the report

Sahil Kajal, a post-graduate, has been given a job in the establishment branch as establishment clerk, while his wife Ritu, who is a commerce graduate, has been given a job as cane clerk in the cane branch.

Karnal Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav confirmed the same.

Sahil and Ritu thanked farmers for their support. The BKU (Charuni) hailed it as a victory of the farming community.

Farmers, on August 28, were ‘canecharged’ at Bastara toll plaza on their way to oppose the state-level meeting of the BJP, which was attended by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. Farmers staged a dharna outside the mini secretariat against the incident on September 7 and lifted it on September 11 with a promise of jobs to the family members of the deceased farmer.
