Irate villagers block Rajpura highway after farmer killed in road accident
Residents of Daun Kalan village blocked the Patiala-Rajpura highway in protest after a farmer was killed in an accident on the highway on tuesday night. The protest resulted in a snarl-up, causing major inconvenience to commuters during the day, which was resolved only after the intervention of the district administration and mandi board officials.
The protestors said they had blocked the highway after a resident of the village was killed while on his way to the village at night. “Rachpal Singh was killed while he was returning to his village on a two-wheeler late in the evening,” a villager said.
