The Rajasthan government has suspended internet services in Bharatpuru’s Phari, Kaman, and Sikri Tehsils for 48 hours due to concerns about rumors spreading in the aftermath of the recovery of two men’s charred bodies from Ghatmika Village in Haryana’s Bhiwani on February 16.
The divisional commissioner of Bharatpur, Sanwarmal Verma, stated that the decision was made to prevent the spread of rumors and misinformation. “To maintain law and order, we have suspended mobile internet services for 48 hours,” Sanwarmal Verma told ANI.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Police said on Sunday that DNA samples from charred skeletons found inside a Bolero matched those of Nasir and Junaid’s family members, in a major breakthrough in the recovery of charred bodies in Bhiwani.
“Results of DNA test have come and it is confirmed that the charred bones, recovered from a vehicle in Loharu village, were of Nasir and Junaid, who was abducted from here,” Gaurav Srivastava, IG Range, Bharatpur told ANI on Sunday.
He also stated that the blood samples recovered from the Scorpio, which was discovered in Haryana’s Jind district, matched those of the deceased.
“This confirms that Nasir and Junaid were beaten up and abducted [prior to their death] in that vehicle,” he said.
“Acting on leads provided by Rinku Saini (an accused arrested in connection with the recovery of the charred bodies), we located the Scorpio bearing Haryana’s number plate, from Jind and recovered blood samples from the rear side, which were later sent for testing. The DNA reports from the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) are out and they, too, matched with the samples of Nasir and Junaid’s family members,” he added.
“Based on scientific evidence, it could now be ascertained that they (Nasir and Junaid) were not only abducted from here but also murdered and burnt. Key evidence was destroyed as well,” the officer said further.
