Afarmer who was protesting against the three agricultural laws at the Singhu border near Delhi was found hanging on Wednesday. The deceased has been identified as Gurpreet Singh, a resident of Amroh district in Punjab’s Fatehgarh Sahib.
Gurpreet Singh was associated with the Jagjit Singh Dallewal faction of Bhartiya Kisan Union, Sidhupur.
Kundli Police has sent the body for post-mortem and launched an investigation into the death of Gurpreet Singh. The police have not yet disclosed the reason behind the death.
Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at several Delhi border points, including Singhu and Tikri, since November 26 last year, demanding a complete repeal of three farm laws and a legal guarantee on minimum support price for their crops.
The Centre, which has held 11 rounds of talks with farmers to break the deadlock, has maintained that the new laws are pro-farmer.
