BJP activist Rinkal's body creamated with amid tight security

BJP activist Jagdip Singh Rinkal (22), who was killed on July 19 at his residence here, was cremated today amid tight security, over a fortnight after the incident.

Rinkal's family members did not allow the cremation to take place as they were demanding the arrest of Congress councilor Gurdip Singh Nittu in the case.

Today, the police got the arrest warrants for eight people, including Nittu, from the court. Nittu's son, Sunny, was arrested on July 20.

The post-mortem of Rinkal's body was performed here at the CMC Hospital on July 28 and it revealed that he had suffered 22 fractures.

Police had obtained the permission of the court four days ago to cremate the body on its own if his family members did not cooperate and conduct the last rites.

Commissioner of Police, Ludhiana, Sukhchain Singh Gill said they approached Rinkal's family members and convinced them that all the culprits will be arrested soon and the investigations were going in the right earnest.

Later, the family softened its stand and agreed to the cremation.
