The protesters claimed Udayvir’s body from Rohtak’s Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences Thursday and amidst minor protests and traffic blockades created by the Arya Samaj followers in various parts of Rohtak,finally reached the cremation ground and performed the last rites.

“The bodies of both the victims were cremated by their family members and villagers. The CRPF and Haryana Police personnel are deployed in the area. The district administration and police have assessed the ground situation and opened the highway,which was lying blocked because of the protest.
