Jaipur, Jun 1 (UNI) The Rajasthan Government and agitating Gujjar leaders were maintaining contact to reach at consensus for the immediate post-mortem of the firing victims whose bodies have been lying at 'dharna' sites in Pillukapura-Karwadi and Sikandara for over a week.
The process of autopsy of bodies of the Sikandara firing victims lying at the SMS Hospital here had already begun last night.
Post-mortem of one of the 14 bodies was done last night and the same on the remaining corpses is expected to be done today, a hospital spokesperson said.
The ruling BJP state President sitting MP Omprakash Mathur who is in constant touch with the state government, said efforts were being made to conduct the post-mortem of bodies lying at Pillukapura by this evening.
Mr Mathur said the government had conveyed to Gujjar leader Col (retd) Kirodi Singh Bainsla about the AIIMS authorities' refusal to provide a team of doctors to conduct the autopsy.
''Now, the government has offered Bainsla to suggest a panel of three doctors of his choice for autopsy so that the it could be conducted at the earliest,'' Mr Mathur said.
He said the government was not rigid even over the venue of the postmortem and ready to accept the Gujjar leader's demand in this regard.
Meanwhile, the preparations for holding a dialogue with the agitating leaders were also progressing. A general guideline draft for the talks was being prepared and contact with Binsala's associates was being maintained, a government spokesperson informed.
'Dharna' at Pillukapura-Karwadi in Bayana, Sikandara in Dausa district and Kushalipura in Sawai Madhopur continued with the victims' bodies. 'Rasta roko' movement also continued at some places today, but the situation remained peaceful.
No untoward incident has been reported from any place since Friday evening, Police said.
