Under attack from AAP that the police did nothing to rescue the 41-year-old farmer during its rally at Jantar Mantar yesterday, the police said in its FIR that neither the workers nor the leader cooperated with it.
"This is totally an incident where AAP workers and leaders instigated the man to commit suicide and they also did n0ot pay heed to requests made by police," says the FIR.
The FIR was registered under Section 306 (Abetement of suicide), 186 (Obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions) and 34 (common intention) of IPC in Parliament Street Police Station.
The two-page FIR, filed on the complaint of S S Yadav, an inspector who was on duty at the rally venue, read "Around 12:50 PM, when AAP leaders were delivering speeches, he saw some people looking upward toward a tree and clapping where a man was waving a broom. I informed the control room on wireless and asked AAP workers and others not to instigate him and help us to bring him down."
But neither the AAP leaders on stage nor the workers on the ground cooperated, the FIR alleged.
Yadav further said that he called up senior officials and again requested AAP workers to help rescue Singh and also to make way for the rescue vehicle. They continued to say that police was against AAP and was not allowing the party to go ahead with the rally.
"I saw that the man had tied a gamcha (towel) around his neck, the other end of which was tied to a branch of the tree. We called the Fire Brigade and requested them to reach the spot with a tall ladder.
"Meanwhile, the AAP workers continued to incite him by clapping which finally led him to hang himself from the tree," Yadav is quoted as saying in the FIR.
The FIR further said that some part of his body was still entangled in the branches.
"Some people were trying to climb the tree but we told them that the Fire Brigade has been called and the man will be rescued using their ladder. But they did not pay heed to our requests and climbed the tree. During their effort, the man fell flat on the ground," it said.
Police claimed that when they tried to take him to RML hospital in a police vehicle, AAP workers blocked their way saying that he is a party worker and will be taken to hospital in their vehicle instead of giving clear passage to 0police jeep.
"We then pushed them and rushed him to RML hospital where doctors declared him brought dead," it added.
It has also dismissed the magisterial probe ordered by the Delhi Government saying that it has no jurisdiction in the matter.
