The body of a young man – with the left wrist severed and a pool of blood on the ground – was found tied to an overturned police barricade at the farmers’ protest site on the Singhu border this morning.
“At about 5 am today, a body was found hanging with hands, legs chopped (off) at the spot where farmers’ protest is underway (in Kundli, Sonipat). No info on who is responsible (and) FIR lodged against an unknown person. Viral video is a matter of probe… rumours will linger,” Deputy Superintendent of Police Hansraj said.
According to reports, Nihangs – a ‘warrior’ Sikh group – are being blamed for the brutal and sickening murder, which took place in Kundli in Haryana’s Sonipat district.
A video has emerged showing a group of Nihangs standing over the man – after his wrist has been cut off and he lies bleeding on the ground, his eyes glazed over in shock and pain.
The Nihangs, some of whom are carrying spears and stand surrounding his body, can be heard demanding the man tell them his name and native village. None of the men in the video make any move to help the man or attend to the horrific wound.
Another video shows the man’s body strung upside down with a rope – his left hand covered in blood – and a pool of blood on the floor.
