A 26-year-old man was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Dadri’s Bisara village on Tuesday morning. The incident comes barely a week after Mohammad Akhlaq, a resident of the village, was beaten to death by a mob over rumours of beef consumption.

The body of Jai Prakash was found by his wife Guddi at 11 am. “His body was cold and he was not responding. I have no idea how he died,” she said.

According to villagers, Prakash was “afraid” of the ongoing investigation into Akhlaq’s lynching, even though neither he nor any of his family members had been named in connection with the case.

Hours before his death, Prakash had advised his brother Vijendra against venturing outside. “At 7 am, Prakash told me to avoid going outside as we could get picked up by the police for questioning. He told me that some people had informed him that the police was after them,” said Vijendra.

Rubbishing such talk, Anurag Singh, circle officer of Dadri, said, “These rumors are baseless. None of Prakash’s family members have been named in the case.”

The police have started inquest proceedings and a post-mortem has been conducted, said Superintendent of Police, Rural, Sanjay Yadav. “We suspect that this is a case of poisoning. We are waiting for the post-mortem report,” said Yadav.

Some of Prakash’s family members demanded compensation for his death, citing the “huge compensation” received by Akhlaq’s family. “He died as he was afraid of the police. We want compensation for his death. A death took place a week ago in the village and a huge compensation was given for that,” said Prakash’s aunt Savita.

Meanwhile, the UP police submitted a report to the district magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar, seeking action against BJP MLA Sangeet Som, MP Mahesh Sharma and former BSP leader and former minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui.

All three leaders had been given permission by the administration to meet Akhlaq’s family members, in the wake of his shocking killing, but had allegedly defied orders and addressed public meetings as well.

      compensation race!!! .May be his own family members killed him.Hindus are greedy and "neech" people. They can fall to any low to get goddess lakshmi in their hands. Killing akhlaq was an act of "hindu bravery" at its best- 100 dogs on one family and they were his neighbors and knew the deceased well.Now the next hindu act of valour is demanding compensation. The "Head" of "hindu gangugardi" will keep quiet since he knows from his experience that one major bloodshed will keep him in power for a decade. His glossary of success mantras from the books he purchased at ahmedabad railway station pavement book vendors is running out and due to his lack of education he cant implement any policies . He also faiiled to impress anyone in world community,obama taunted him on secularism before leaving India. This vasco da gama also fails to impress overseas by indulging in acts like crying and laughing too much without any reason. He said all the gujarat wealth including biilions of dollars from nri gujrati world over was due to his leadership.His plan A was kicking out educated leaders on false promise of Development.Since plan A is ot working ,its plan B -Killings and Dharm Yudh for a Hindu Rashtra

            The Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) keeps quiet. He is an eloquent Prime Minister who addresses lakhs of people, but here writers are being murdered, innocent people are being killed, his ministers are making objectionable statements...Why doesn't he shut them up?
