Sangrur, October 23

Members of Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan) protested in front of the Sangrur Deputy Commissioner's office for the second day today, demanding compensation and job for the next of kin of farmer Meghraj Nagri, who died on October 9 during a protest against the Central farm Acts.

The body has been lying in a hospital as family and BKU members have refused to do the cremation over the non-fulfilment of their demands.

"The Punjab Government has neither given any compensation to the bereaved family nor announced any debt waiver or job for it. Today we blocked all three gates of the DC office. In the coming days, we will further intensify our agitation," said Amrik Singh, district president, BKU (Ugrahan).

Sangrur DC Ramvir said he had been in touch with higher-ups and the issue would be resolved at the earliest.
