'No bullets found in bodies of farmers who died in Mandsaur'

Press Trust of India  |  Sagar (MP) 

Leader of opposition in the Assembly Singh today claimed that autopsy didn't find bullets in the bodies of victims who died in police firing in Mandsaur during farmers' agitation.

"No bullet was found in the bodies of the farmers killed in the police firing (on June 6) during post-mortem.

"I demand forensic examination of policemen's guns to know the truth behind missing bullets," the leader said at a press conference here today.

"It also means that the state deliberately removed the bullets from the bodies of dead farmers," he alleged.

Singh was here to participate in Congress' protest against farmers' deaths in Mandsaur.

But he himself landed in a small controversy as a video purportedly showing him smacking a party worker to push him away from the police barricade emerged.

Singh said he did not hit the worker but only pushed him away.

"When we were going to submit a memorandum to the district collector, some workers were getting angry. I stopped them as we wanted peaceful protest," he said.

State chief Arun Yadav and others addressed party workers near Pili Kothi as a part of the protest.

As to Singh's claim that autopsy found no bullets, Mandsaur superintendent of police Manoj Kumar Singh told PTI that he will look into the facts before making any comment.
