New Delhi, Dec 27: Amarjit Singh allegedly died by suicide, few kilometers away from the Tikri border protest site. The advocate from Jalalabad, Fazilka Disrict consumed poisonous substance on Sunday. He was immediately rushed to the civil hospital in Bahadurgarh and later shifted to Rohtak’s Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences.
As per NDTV, he ‘was taken to a hospital in Rohtak where doctors declared him dead on arrival, the Police said.’
A Suicide note was found in his pocket, titled ‘Letter to Modi, the Dictator’, which bears his signature. The letter elaborates Farmer’s disillusionment with the Government’s actions. “Kindly don’t snatch the bread and butter (Roti) of farmers, labors and common people for a few capitalists and don’t compel them to eat Sulphos. Socially you have betrayed the public and politically you have betrayed your associate parties like SAD.”, stated the typed suicide note dated 18th December. The police is probing the authenticity of the letter.
This is not the first instance of such suicide cases. Earlier a 65-year-old Sikh preacher Sant Ram Singh died by suicide near Singhu border as he couldn’t bear the pain of the Farmers. Later, a 22-year-old farmer, died in Punjab’s Bhatinda after returning from the protest site.
The Fazilka Lawyer in his suicide letter stated that his sacrifice would compel the government to listen to people’s voice. Hundreds of farmers have been protesting at Delhi borders against the three Farm bills passed the government in September.
