Rajasthan man runs tractor over rival many times, locals film it, don’t stop him

A man in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur district was brutally crushed by a tractor over a land dispute. A video of the incident went viral on social media where locals were seen filming the act, instead of intervening.

The incident took place in Adda village. The man who was run over by the tractor has been identified as Nirpat Gurjar, and his brother Damodar Gurjar was allegedly the one riding the tractor, said Omprakash Kilaniya, Assistant Superintendent of Police Bharatpur.

“The person who killed Narpat Singh by riding a tractor over him appears to be Damodar Gurjar, the brother of the deceased. There was a fight between the two parties three days back as well. Today, there was a fight again between them, and it seems the brother hopped on a tractor and killed Nirpat,” Kilaniya said.

There was a long-standing land dispute between Nirpat and Damodar, police said.

So far, five people have been detained by the police and a search is underway to catch the rest.

The incident is drawing widespread criticism from people and Opposition in Rajasthan.

Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Sambit Patra condemned the incident and said it is about “all Congress-ruled states”. He also demanded Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, who is visiting poll-bound Rajasthan on Wednesday, to also pay a visit to Bharatpur.

“She (Priyanka) should go there and suspend the police officials, DM, SP and show that she has the courage to take a stand and she is not just for speeches and sloganeering. She has to project that she has a spine. This is a call to Priyanka Vadra. I challenge her to go there first,” Patra said.
