NewDelhi: A 35-year-old man was found brutally murdered at Delhi's Singhu border on Friday. His hand and legs were chopped off and he was found hanging from a police barricade at the farmers' protest site. A Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) leader pinned the blame on Nihang Sikhs. He alleged that the man was lynched to death by Nihang Sikhs. He said, "Nihangs are behind the incident. They have accepted it." However, police said they received no information about who was responsible for the incident. The Samyukta Kisan Morcha has called for an emergency meeting over the alleged lynching of the man.

"The Kundli police station received information at 5 am that a body was found near the farmers' protest site," a Sonipat police official said. He said the deceased was found wearing only a pair of shorts.

"We have registered a case and further investigations are on to find out the culprits," Inspector General of Police, Rohtak Range, Sandeep Khirwar told PTI over the phone. He said police have interrogated people near the protest site regarding the incident.

A case of murder has been registered against unidentified persons, the officer said. Asked about a video clip circulating on the social media, in which some people accused the deceased of committing sacrilege, he said the matter is being investigated. The body has been sent to the Sonipat civil hospital for post-mortem.
