Protesting farmer beaten to death by fellow protestor from his village at Tikri border, accused arrested

The police have registered a case against Ranbir Singh, on the basis of a complaint by the victim's uncle Nahar Singh, under IPC Section 302.

On Friday (April 2) night, a 26-year-old anti-farm law protestor was murdered by a fellow farmer protestor near Kasar village on the outskirts of Bahadurgarh at the Tikri border in Delhi.

As per reports, the victim has been identified as Gurpreet Singh. He was a resident of Barnala in the State of Punjab. The accused, Ranbir Singh alias Satta Singh, hails from the same village. Both of them had been camping at the Tikri border to protest against the farm laws enacted by the Modi government. On Friday, a fight ensued between the two over a monetary dispute in their tent.

An agitated Ranbir thrashed Gurpreet with a lathi and injured him badly. After committing the crime, he fled the scene. Gurpreet was rescued by other anti-farm law protestors, who then admitted the victim to the civil hospital in Bahadurgarh. He later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital. The police have registered a case against the absconding Ranbir Singh on the basis of a complaint by the victim’s uncle Nahar Singh.

While speaking about the matter, SHO (Bahadurgarh Sector 6) Jai Bhagwan informed, “They had an argument over money exchange and Ranbir beat up Gurpreet with a lathi. Other protesters camping at the site rushed to Gurpreet’s rescue and got him admitted to the civil hospital in Bahadurgarh, where he died.”

The accused Ranbir Singh has been booked under Indian Penal Code Section (IPC) 302 (murder). Although he was absconding after committing the crime, he was later arrested by the police. On Saturday he was remanded to judicial custody. “Since it was an identified accused. We rushed our police parties and arrested him. He has confessed to have murdered him,” Jhajjar SP Rajesh Duggal said.
