Edal Singh Gurjar, resident of Pura village of Rathol in Dimani police station area, was a farmer by profession. Along with farming, he also used to carry goods using tractors. Gurjar's younger brother was carrying some goods in his tractor. He was playing music loudly on his tractor. When he passed through the door of Shyamu Tomar, the sarpanch of Kachnaudha village, the sarpanch stopped the tractor. The tractor driver did not like this behaviour, after which a dispute started between the two on this issue, other people of the village came there. The villagers intervened and signalled the tractor driver to leave from there. Later, on the next day again the tractor driver went through the Sarpanch's door, banging loudly. The sarpanch informed Edal about this to Edal.
Edal supported his brother
Edal Gurjar, supporting his brother, said that every day he will come out of your door playing music on the tractor in a loud voice, whatever you want to do, you can do it. On hearing this the Sarpanch became furious. At around 8:45 pm, he reached Edal Gurjar's house in Rathol Ka Pura village along with a dozen youths. Here the Sarpanch and his associates abused Edal and his brother and opened fire with a pistol.
Sarpanch Shyamu Tomar and his associates also started firing with illegal weapons. During the firing, a bullet hit Edal Singh Gurjar in the chest, due to which he died on the spot. As soon as Edal was shot, all the accused ran away from the spot.
