"Have come to come to know that Gajendra had gone to Manish Sisodia house at around 11 am, before the rally. We have come to know that Gajendra was in touch with Sisodia," Rajender Singh, Gajendra Singh's cousin told ANI.

Earlier in the day, senior IAS officer from Rajasthan Sanjay Dixit, tweeted saying that the Gajendra Singh was not a farmer, but a businessman and political activist of AAP.

"This one from Rajasthan: Gajendra Singh was no farmer. He was a business person and a political activist of #AAP. Figure out the rest," tweeted Dixit.

Meanwhile, his uncle told media persons that no AAP leaders have contacted them after Gajendra's death.

Gajendra Singh, hanged himself from a tree at an AAP rally just before Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal addressed thousands against the controversial land ordinance.

Surprisingly, no AAP leader claimed that the deceased was a member of AAP initially they were of the view that he was a guest teacher, who was protesting against AAP government.

The dramatic death of the farmer had turned into a political storm.

The sensational incident took place at Jantar Mantar in the heart of the city where thousands from Delhi and other states had turned up to denounce the land bill at a mass meeting called by the AAP.
