Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday directed a probe into the suicide by a farmer at an Aam Aadmi Party rally here against the land bill.

The Home Minister spoke to Delhi Police Commissioner B S Basssi and directed that the incident should be probed.

The Commissioner of Police immediately ordered a probe through the Joint CP- New Delhi range into it, officials said.

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“.
