In a shocking incident, a mutilated body of a man, with hands and legs chopped off, was found hanging on a police barricade at the farmers’ protest site near the Singhu border. The man was brutally murdered and his body was found hanging from a barricade near farmers’ protest site on Friday morning. The officials of the Kundli police station were later allowed to take the body to the nearby civil hospital.

The person was identified to be 35 year old Lakhbir Singh, son of Darshan Singh, belonging to Village Cheema Kala, Police Station Sarai Amanat Khan, District Tarn Taran, Punjab.

A Nihang group at the scene has claimed responsibility for the murder saying that the incident took place because of the deceased’s attempt to commit sacrilege with regard to the Sarbaloh Granth. It is been reported that this deceased was staying with the same group of Nihangs for some time.

What happened the night before?

Around 3 am, a man, wearing traditional Sikh drawers appeared at the makeshift mobile Gurdwara at Singhu border. He sought to pick up the Guru Granth Sahib and insult it. The Nihangs, in whose camp the Granth Sahib is located, apprehended him in the act. The man confessed to being sent to the protest site by his backers to commit the sacrilege.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha has condemned this gruesome killing and wants to make it clear that both the parties to this incident, the Nihang group and the deceased person, have no relation with Samyukt Kisan Morcha.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) has stated that it is against sacrilege of any religious text or symbol, but also condemn the act of taking the law into their own hands.

SKM has demanded that the culprits be punished according to law after investigating the allegation of murder and conspiracy behind sacrilege.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha said that the farmers movement at the borders is a peaceful and democratic movement and is  opposed to violence in any form. SKM will cooperate with the police and administration in any lawful action.
