Man killed at Singhu border identified as labourer, father of 3


New Delhi: The man whose mutilated body was found hanging at a barricade near the site of the farmers protest at Singhu border has been identified as Lakhbir Singh, a labourer from Tarn Taran district in Punjab. He is believed to have been around 35-36 years of age.

Lakhbir Singh’s body was discovered at around 5 am on Friday, tied to an upside down barricade at Singhu border.

According to police, he belongs to the scheduled caste and is survived by a sister, a wife and three daughters, the eldest being just 12 years old.

Lakhbir Singh’s left hand had been chopped off from the wrist. His hands and legs were covered in blood, indicating that he had been beaten brutally.

The Nihangs, a warrior group of Sikhs, are believed to be behind the ghastly murder.

Meanwhile, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha has condemned the incident and distanced itself from it, saying it has nothing to do with either the Nihangs or the victim.

The group has said it has offered full support to the police.

The farmers have been protesting at Singhu border for past one year against three controversial farm laws.
