New Delhi: Haryana Police has registered an FIR against unknown persons in the barbaric incident that took place at the Singhu border on Friday, wherein a man was tortured, murdered and the body mutilated at the farmers' protesting site.
As per the latest updates received about the Singhu Border incident, the deceased has now been identified as a man named Lakhbir Singh who was about a labourer about 35-36-years old from Cheema Khurd village from Tarn Taran district. He belonged to a Scheduled Caste.
According to the FIR, Haryana Police at around 5 a.m. on Friday morning received information that a group of Nihangs have chopped off a man's hand at the protest site and later tied him to an iron barricade with a rope.
"When we reached the spot we saw that the body of a man whose one hand and leg were cut off was hanging on the barricade," the police said.
The body was surrounded by the Nihangs, who neither cooperated in the inquiry nor did they allow to take it off the barricade.
The body was found near the staging area of the anti-farm law protest site where the farmers have been demonstrating against the three farm laws for over 10 months now.
It is being alleged that the man was caught while desecrating the Sikh religious holy book, however, an official confirmation on the same is still awaited.
Heavy deployment of police from both Haryana and Delhi sides could be seen at the border.
Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) has blamed the Nihangs for carrying out the brutal crime.
They told the media that Nihangs have been causing problems in and around the protest sites since day one.
