The Aam Admi Party did very little to help the cause of the police who say they had done everything possible to rescue Gajendra Singh, the farmer who committed suicide at a rally in New Delhi on Wednesday, April 22.

We even called in the fire services who came in with a ladder to bring Singh down. The reinforcements had arrived but once again we were stopped the police say in their FIR.
Singh had tied the cloth to his neck. However he was stuck in one of the branches. We told the volunteers that the fire service personnel would bring him down safely. [AAP to pay Rs 10 lakh to Gajendra Singh's family]
The volunteers in the meantime had gone up the tree and untied the cloth. This led to him falling down and he passed away the police have also stated.
The police have also alleged that the volunteers were all along provoking Singh or trying to block the police. [Gajendra Singh never had suicidal tendencies, did not suffer huge crop loss]
