Protesting farmer from Samrala dies at Singhu

Sonepat, September 19

A 74-year-old farmer, Jai Singh, of Dhinsa village of Samrala in Punjab was found dead in his tent under suspicious circumstances at the Singhu border this morning.

Heart attack was suspected to be the reason behind the death. The farmer was an active member of the BKU (Lakhowal) and had come to participate in the farmers’ protest at here around six months ago and was staying in the tent. He reportedly had an acre of land.

Jai Singh did not get up in the morning when his fellow farmers approached him. They called a doctor, who declared him dead. The body was sent for post-mortem, said inspector Ravi Kumar, SHO, Kundli. — TNS
