AAP to give Rs 10 lakh as compensation to Gajendra Singh's family
AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that his party activists tried but failed to save Gajendra Singh after he hanged himself from a tree at Jantar Mantar.

New Delhi: Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party announced on Thursday a compensation of Rs 10 lakh to farmer Gajendra Singh's family who killed himself at a party rally on Wednesday.

Making the announcement, Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh said that his party activists tried but failed to save Gajendra Singh after he hanged himself from a tree at Jantar Mantar.

He added that Delhi Police were very much to blame for the death on Wednesday because they failed to intervene despite repeated appeals from AAP leaders.

"The truth of what happened is captured on your cameras," Sanjay Singh told the media. "The way the police acted was insensitive and incompetent."

The AAP leader accused the central government, which controls Delhi Police, of hoisting a concocted case against the AAP over the death of the farmer.

The dramatic suicide took place at a rally in the heart of the capital called by the AAP to denounce the land ordinance.
