A news report by PTI said that 45-year-old Saini had gone to the fields to attend nature’s call in Rambas village under Govindgarh town on Sunday morning when he was beaten up by a group of about 20 people. He was rushed to a hospital in Jaipur but succumbed to his injuries.
Saini’s death had triggered communal tension in the area prompting BJP leaders to visit the family of the deceased. Ahuja, who made the shocking confession, had also visited the area to meet the family members of Saini.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is being urged to take immediate steps to act against Ahuja.
