The family of a 19-year-old farmer, who passed away in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri throughout a demonstration on Sunday, has declined to cremate the body until they are supplied the autopsy report.

Lovepreet Singh and three other farmers were amongst the 9 killed in Sunday’s violence during a demonstration against Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s see. Four farmers were supposedly run over by a cars and truck in the minister’s convoy.

“My child was squashed under a vehicle. There has actually been no action against the person accountable. The administration is attempting to cover,” said Lovepreet’s father and added, “He had left home saying he was heading out for a great cause.”

Lovepreet’s body has been kept in a casket and the whole household is waiting on the autopsy report.

“When he was taken to the health center, he called and said, ‘Please come quickly’. When we reached the hospital, he was no more, stated his distraught father.

Farmers allege that the vehicle which slaughtered Lovepreet was being driven by the minister’s child, Ashish Mishra.

The Uttar Pradesh Authorities have filed a case against Mishra, but no arrests have actually yet been made.
