24 April, New Delhi
The family members of Rajasthan farmer Gajendra Singh, who committed suicide at AAP rally on Wednesday questioned the suicide theory saying he could have been provoked into taking the extreme step.
Blaming Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the death, they said that Singh had gone to Jantar Mantar at the invitation of deputy Chief Minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia.
Gajendra’s brother Vijendra and daughter Megha said he was not one who would commit suicide and the handwriting in the purported suicide note was not his and demanded a probe into it.
Gajendra’s sister said Kejriwal is responsible for the death. Questioning the suicide theory, Vijendra suggested his brother could have been provoked.
He said Gajendra was in touch with Sisodia and had even met him after the poll victory in February this year.
