The farmers’ agitation continues against the three new agricultural laws of the central government. Saturday is the 38th day of the movement. Many farmers have also died during this farmer movement. While many farmers have died in road accidents, some have died due to illness or cold. The latest case is of the Tikari border, where a 64-year-old farmer died inside a trolley. The farmer’s name was Rajkumar, who hailed from Bhana village in Haryana.
Bahadurgarh police said that the farmers were found unconscious inside their trolley, after which they were taken to the nearby district hospital. The farmer was later referred to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Rohtak, where he was declared dead.
Police said that the family of the farmer has been informed about this and the dead body of the farmer is in Morchery. A senior police officer said that we will inquire into this matter. At the same time, according to the friends of the farmer, he was sleeping alone in his trolley. He had brain haemorrhage and he also had a cold. We are waiting for the final report of the doctor.
The farmer had been protesting at the Tikari border for more than 20 days. He came here along with five other farmers of his village. Police said that all his friends are taking the dead body of the farmer back to his house. At the same time, the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee claims that more than 42 farmers have died in the last 37 days due to farmer demonstrations.
Earlier on Friday, a farmer from Bhagwanpur Nangal village in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat district was killed on Ghazipur border. Farmers have been camping since 26 November 2020 on the Ghazipur border, Tikari border and Singhu border, located on the borders of Delhi, the capital of the country.
