A semi-naked mutilated body of a man with his left hand and foot chopped off was found hanging from an overturned police barricade near the main stage of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) at Singhu border on October 15. The deceased was identified as Lakhbeer Singh (35), a labourer from Cheema Khurd village in Tarn Taran (Punjab).

Besides, Punjab Home Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa also spoke to Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh and urged him to call a meeting of various Nihang groups to find out facts regarding activities of Baba Aman Singh and allegations that many fake Nihang leaders had come up.
