Jaipur, Jun 1 (UNI) The post-mortem of the victims of Pillukapura-Karwadi police firing during Gujjar agitation for ST status on May 23 will be conducted at 'dharna' site in Pillukapura tomorrow morning and dialogue for opening talks between the Rajasthan government and the protesting community leaders was held today.

Teams of doctors have reached there for conducting on-the-spot post-mortem of the victims but due to some procedural arrangements the actual process of autopsy could not begin this evening, a government spokesperson said.

Now the post-mortem would be conducted tomorrow morning, the spokesperson said.

Earlier, a Medical Board was constituted inducting doctors of the choice of Gujjar leader Col Kirodi Singh Bainsla, Water Resources Department Principal Secretary S N Thanvi, who is camping at Bayana, said.

The bodies of four firing victims which were lying in Bharatpur Hospital for over a week were also sent to Pillukapura-Karwadi for autopsy along with 12 other bodies that were kept at the 'dharna' site there since their death on May 23.

The post-mortem of three bodies would be conducted simultaneously at temporary cabins erected at the 'dharna' site, Mr Thanvi told UNI over phone.

The process of on-the-spot post-mortem of bodies lying at the 'dharna' site in Sikandara was also being taken up, a government spokesman said here.

The dialogue process with the agitating leaders also made headway as sitting BJP MP and scion of Bharatpur royal family Vishwendra Singh and BJP MLA and former minister Devi Singh Bhati proceeded for Pillukapura to meet Col Bainsla to prepare groundwork for opening bilateral talks between the state government and the Gujjar leaders.

The state government was also busy in preparing general guideline draft for the talks.

Three representatives of Art of Living Mission founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar have also left for Pillukapura to convey to Col Bainsla the message of the spiritual leader who had also offered to mediate for an amicable solution to the Gujjar issue.

Two representatives of Anuvrat Mission chief Acharya Mahapragha also met Col Bainsla to convey him the message of the acharya.

It was the second successive ''violence free'' day in the state amid 'rasta roko' movement at some places.

Meanwhile train services continued to be disrupted for the past 10 days.
