New Delhi, April 28: The probe into the death of farmer Gajendra Singh has found that he was instigated to climb up the tree.

The police who are investigating the case informed that as per the account given to them by the witnesses he was instigated into climbing the tree and staging a show and the death was purely an accident and not intended suicide.

'Gajendra Singh was instigated'

The police which has been inquiring into the case is also checking to see if the suicide note was written by Singh himself. The family members have told the police that the handwriting does not match with his.

Gajendra Singh never intended suicide

The probe has also found that Singh who had come down to New Delhi to take part in the rally conducted by the Aam Admi Party at Jantar Mantar did not intend committing suicide.

An officer informed OneIndia that increasingly evidence shows that he was instigated by people around him in the crowd to climb the tree. Several members of his family and friends at his village also told the police that he could have never committed suicide.

The key point is that Singh was not depressed and the crop loss as alleged in that suicide note was not correct. He was in a better position than a lot of others in his village, the police have learnt.

While it has more or less been concluded that Singh was instigated into staging an act it is still to be ascertained whether the organizers of the rally were in the know of this. Were they the ones who called him to Delhi in the first place? This is under probe, the officer says.

Suicide note dilemma

A suicide note is always key to an investigation. In this case however it has been the cause for confusion. There are several contradictory reports on the suicide note.

Firstly the family says that the handwriting was not of Singh's. Moreover if he was instigated to climb the tree where was the time to write a note? Thirdly the contents of the note written allegedly by Singh and the one read out by Kumar Vishwas had different content.
