On Wednesday, the entire nation saw a shameful incident of a farmer publicly hanging himself from a tree in front of almost 5000 people. The famer identified as Gajendra Singh Rajput committed suicide at Jantar Mantar in the Aam Aadmi Party’s kisan rally. His suicide letter revealed that he came from Dausa district of Rajasthan and the recent hailstorms had destroyed his entire crops.

This tragic incident happened just a few steps away from Parliament, which is in session. There were multiple layers of policemen deployed on duty and neither of them came forward to save the poor farmer, alleged an AAP volunteer who said that he climbed the tree after the farmer to try and save him.

The volunteer told a news channel that, “By the time I reached him, it was too late. But I supported him hoping that we could do something and with my other hand I signaled to the policeman below for help. They did nothing just stood around and laughed.”

Also, the tree was only 40 steps away from the stage where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his party leaders was seated. AAP leader Sanjay Singh too spoke from the stage asking the police to stop Gajendra.

Kejriwal announced from the stage, after Gajendra was rushed to RML hospital, that “I feel sad that before our eyes he climbed the tree. I kept telling the police to save him. The police are not in our control, but at least they are under god’s control.”

However, after the death of the farmer, a magisterial inquiry has been ordered. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also solicited the Delhi police to give a report on the series of events and police preparedness at AAP’s rally.
