The reason behind the death of a farmer in the ITO area of Delhi during a tractor rally on January 26, 2021, is not a not bullet injury, the Uttar Pradesh Police clarified on January 27, 2021.
He died of injuries caused by a tractor accident, the police said in a statement released soon after the post mortem report confirmed the cause of death of the victim. This comes as a refutation to the claims made by the farmers.
The post mortem report of the 26-year diseased has confirmed that he died after getting injured in a Tractor accident, police added.
“The post-mortem report clarifies that he was not shot. He died of the antemortem injuries which he received after his tractor overturned as seen in a viral video,” Avinash Chandra, a senior UP police officer, was quoted as saying in a report published by news agency ANI.
Soon after the death of the farmer, the deceased was identified as Navrit Singh. He had returned to his native home at a village in Rampur from Australia just a few days ago. He had joined the farmers’ protest on Tuesday.
“We came together to participate in the parade but never knew it would happen,” a neighbor was quoted as saying in a media report.
