A day after the corpse of a man, with hands and legs chopped off, was found hanging at the farmers' protest site, the accused has been sent to police custody. The court on Saturday sent Sarvajeet Singh to seven days police custody.


The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35, from Punjab's Taran Taran district, was found tied to an overturned police barricade at the site where farmers are protesting three Central farm laws for over 10 months. His body bore over 10 wounds caused by sharp-edged weapons. The incident had been blamed on a group of Nihangs.

Further details awaited.
