Ludhiana: Dhanna Singh, who had mobilised farmers from over 40 villages to be a part of the Delhi Chalo protest, on Friday, was cut short by an accident that claimed his life on the Bhiwani-Delhi highway.

Two farmers accompanying him were injured in the accident.

A resident of Khiyali Chehlan Wali village of Mansa district, Dhanna died when a tractor-trolley he was travelling in was hit from behind in Mundhal village of Bhiwani district by a truck.

“Baljinder Singh in his mid-twenties was driving the tractor, while Dhanna and Gora Singh (38) were sitting on both sides. Around 25-30 villagers were sitting inside that trolley when in the wee hours, a truck hit the vehicle from behind due to which he fell on and the tyre of tractor that crushed him. The other two villagers also fell, but they sustained injuries and were taken to a hospital in Bhiwani itself,” said Bikar Singh, who was inside the trolley at that time.

After the 45-year-old was declared dead at 8 am, farmers staged a dharna on the highway for over an hour demanding 20 lakh compensation, loan waiver and job for the next of kin of the deceased farmer.

The driver of the truck was arrested. After this, farmers decided to continue their march to Delhi, while Dhanna’s body was sent back along with few villagers of Khiyali Chehlan Wali.

The body of the protester was cremated on Friday evening.

Buta Singh Burjgill, president of BKU (Dakaunda), said, “There were stones and mud lying on the road at different locations of the highway and this was the reason that 3 of them were sitting in front to locate stones and clear them. Stones were placed at the accident spot too. Hence, administration is also equally responsible for this incident.”

Two farmers from morcha came back with the body and after the cremation went back to join the march.
