The farmer identified as Gajendra Singh committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree in Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s presence at the Aam Aadmi Party’s rally at the Jantar Mantar, a stone’s throw from Parliament, at about 2 PM.

He was rushed to nearby RML hospital in a police jeep. Doctors there said that he was “brought dead”.

Kejriwal said, “We kept asking the police to bring him down. Police may not be in our control but at least there should be a semblance of humanity among them.”
