Earlier in the day, the Agrawal community organised demonstration and blocked Agar Road for hours. They were led by Bhagwandas Airen, Vijay Agrawal and others. The Agrawal Panchayat alleged that 28-year-old Parichay Mittal, son of Satish Mittal of Dhaba Road was continuously pressurised by the illegal moneylenders for the repayment which forced him to commit suicide. He ended his life by consuming poison on Tuesday. The community members alleged that the youth died of humiliation and harassment by the moneylenders. The police also did not take cognizance of the matter, they alleged. Upon this, the members of Mittal family supported by Agrawal Panchayat staged dharna on the Agar Road. The traffic remained disrupted for more than two hours. Later CSP, Kotwali, Saurabh Mishra intervened and on his assurance they lifted the dharna. Community members also submitted a memorandum of their demands to the CSP.
