Police have claimed that Kanhaiya Lal Patidar, one of the five farmers shot dead in the district, was booked for drug trafficking four times and was absconding in one case. SP Manoj Singh told reporters on Saturday that Patidar had been booked under relevant sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) several times. According to Town Inspector Vinod Kushwaha, Patidar (38) was booked for drug trafficking four times between 2001 and 2011.

In the first three cases, registered under different police stations, he was granted bail, while he was absconding following the fourth FIR at Neemuch Cantt police station. The first FIR was registered against him at Narayangarh police station in 1994 when he was caught allegedly trafficking opium.

In 2001, he was nabbed with smack worth Rs 4.5 crore and an FIR was registered against him at Mandsaur police station. In 2011, two cases were registered in Y D Nagar and Neemuch Cantt police stations when he was allegedly caught in possession of 11 quintal and 22 quintal poppy husk respectively. He was absconding since then, police said.

      If cases are justifications for kill-ing then Yogi also has cases registered against him and he is not allowing his own prosecution!

          Even if he is having hundred cases against him, how can you kill him for demanding appropriate remuneration for agrarian products and farm Loan waiver in MP?

            It's obvious these protestors are paid protestors bought by the opposition who cannot hope to beat BJP any other way so ignite the country just the way the British usually did before they were thrown out of their colonies!

              So is this why and how congress protects drug traffickers and smugglers which is a serious crime in human history its destruction. Now we wonder why Rahul was so desperate to contact farmers (such Fake farmers) Cant he get enough in Punjab ? or was he going to pay for the damage caused to privet citizens's property, vehicle, goods, damage and distraction to national and government property and infrastructure which also belong to public? all done by the fake farmers

                  Domwit! Is it that difficult for you to deduce that most of the protesters were NOT real distressed farmers but hired landless farm laborers at best? Or does your simple mind actually believe the 5 shot omly just happened NOT TO BE farmers but landless laborers?

                  How Congress and AAP uses drug traffickers to let loose violence in order to loot properties. How Rahul and AAP troupe politicizes farmers protest to get brownie point against ru party.
