In a shocking revelation, the ‘masked man’ nabbed by the protesting farmer leaders who alleged a conspiracy to kill four of them has confessed in Haryana Police’s custody that he was abducted by the protesting farmers, Times Now reports.
On Friday (22 January) night, the farmer leaders presented a person and alleged that a conspiracy had been hatched to shoot four farmer leaders and create disturbance during their proposed tractor rally in Delhi on 26 January.
The masked man is currently being interrogated by the Haryana Police. He has been identified as 19-year-old Yogesh, a resident of Sonipat.
Yogesh in a video alleges that he was abducted and brutally beaten by the farmers for days to force him to obey their orders. He adds that the farmers told him, if he wants them to release him he will do and say as told.
"Hum agar marte hain to hum kisiko batate bhi nahin hain, hum maar kaat ke phek denge, pata bhi nahin lagega (When are capable of killing someone and disposing their body, no one will know)", the abductors allegedly told the youth.
He said that like him other youths too were brutally assaulted by the farmers and that forced him to invent the shooting story before the media persons yesterday (22 January).
