Funeral of Rajasthan youth held after 9 days

Special Correspondent

Gehlot Government announces compensation


An agreement between the administration and the family members of the deceased

Government makes it a package putting together a few more similar cases


JAIPUR: The funeral of Rajesh Meena, the young man who killed himself jumping from an overhead water tank in Sawai Madhopur's Surwal village nine days ago, took place on Saturday following an agreement reached between the administration and the family of the deceased.

The cremation took place in the evening in Badlawas, the native village of Rajesh who had taken the extreme step in protest against alleged police inaction in nabbing the killers of an old woman in February.

There was a large gathering present at the funeral.

District Collector Ravi Kumar, speaking from Sawai Madhopur, said the funeral took place peacefully and the situation was under control in the whole area.

The district is under prohibitory orders.

Earlier during the day, the body, kept in Maharao Bhimsingh Hospital in Kota after post-mortem two days ago, was taken to the village.

The whole situation had created a lot of tension in the State and the district administration as well as the family members and pressure groups within the community were insisting on a package similar to what was given to Phool Mohammed, the Station House Officer of Man Town Police Station who was killed in mob fury, in the case of Rajesh as well.

The relatives finally relented as the Government announced a solatium of Rs.5 lakh to the family.

However, the Government made it a package putting together a few more similar cases including those of the victims of dacoits. Information available here indicates that along with the family of Rajesh Meena, the widows of four persons killed by dacoits in east Rajasthan some time back also would be given Rs.5 lakh each.

Poll violence

Their cause was taken up by the Independent MP from Dausa, Kirorilal Meena.

The Government has also announced Rs.5 lakh each for the families of two persons killed in poll violence in Sawai Madhopur and Dausa during past Lok Sabha polls.
