New Delhi: The 25-year-old farmer, who died after his tractor overturned during the protesting farmers' tractor rally on Republic Day, did not suffer any gunshot wounds, the police of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh have told the Delhi High Court.
Delhi Police has said that according to the post-mortem report the young farmer died due to a head injury as a result of the accident and all his injuries were possible in a roadaccident.
The submissions have been made in response to a plea by the deceased's grandfather —Hardeep Singh — claiming that the victim suffered gunshot injuries to his head.
