A temple priest in Rajasthan was burnt alive allegedly by the land mafia over the encroachment of the temple land. The incident of Rajasthan bears an eerie similarity to the Palghar lynching case but the police continue to hint at self-immolation theory. The priest was set ablaze by six men, however, 5 of them are still absconding.
BJP has condemned the incident and has blamed the Ashok Gehlot government for deteriorating law and order in the state, questions are being raised on the Gandhis, who marched to Hathras for justice. However, both Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi are silent on this issue to date. BJP leader has stated that the police statement is misleading the public and if the government does not take a favourable action against the accused, the leaders will take the priest's body to Jaipur and will sit on a dharna.
