Mob incited Gajendra to commit suicide: Cops to MHA


New Delhi: The blame game continued even days after Gajendra Singh committed suicide, with the latest being Delhi police blaming the mob at Aam Aadmi Party’s kisan rally for inciting the farmer.

In the report submitted to the Union Home Ministry, police have also blamed AAP leaders for making provocative speeches during the rally.

Delhi Police has been trying to piece together the last 24 hours of farmer Gajendra Singh’s life by analysing his mobile phone data and questioning people to find out where he had visited and whom he had spoken to before his alleged suicide at Jantar Mantar.

One of the relatives of the deceased farmer, whose mobile phone number was found on Singh’s call log, said he was asked by him to switch on his TV as “something big was going to happen”.

“TV kholo, dekho kuch bada hone wala hai,” said Singh’s relative, who was questioned by Delhi police.

Police said they are trying to ascertain whether there was a hint in his words as to the events that were soon to unfold during an AAP rally in Delhi.


Some others who came into contact with Singh before he climbed a tree and tied a towel round his neck in the moments preceding the tragedy are also being questioned to determine whether he had showed any suicidal tendency.

Two eyewitnesses who had seen him climb the tree and three AAP workers who had scrambled up to bring Singh down are also being questioned, added police.

Police are also analysing Singh’s movements after he left his Dausa home to reach Jantar Mantar. “All this will help us find out whether he had reached there to commit suicide or if it was an accidental death,” they added.

Singh, a 41-year-old farmer from Rajasthan, allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree during an AAP rally against the land ordinance. In a note scribbled by him, Singh said he was thrown out of his home by his father after suffering crop loss.
