Patiala, February 23

Farmer leaders have rejected the government’s offer of Rs 1 crore compensation to the deceased farmer.

Leaders are adamant for an FIR against the guilty cops who shot at Shubhkaran Singh.

They say they will not allow the post-mortem to be done.

Technically, the police need someone from the victim’s family to sign the consent for post-mortem but since Shubhkaran’s father is backing the farmer leaders, the post-mortem can take place only after his consent.

 “We will not allow the post-mortem till the genuine demand of getting an FIR registered against the guilty Haryana cops is accepted,” said Jagjit Singh Dallewal and Sarwan Singh Pandher, who are the leaders of the Dilli Chalo march.
