While Pramod wanted to take Rahul’s body home for cremation, he was told by hospital authorities that the body cannot be released without a postmortem, which was not possible as the police personnel were not available.
For the family of 18-year-old Rahul, a daylong search for him ended in a mortuary. Rahul had received two bullet injuries in the chest when Border Security Force and police personnel opened fire on February 19. The wait for the body, however, continues as doctors are yet to conduct the postmortem in the absence of police.
Rahul was one of three brothers from an agriculturist Jat family of Medina village in Rohtak. A second-year student of Bachelor of Arts at Jat College, he was among the protesting students sitting outside Maharishi Dayanand University (MDU), Rohtak, seeking Jat reservation.
