New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh today directed that the probe into the farmer's death at an AAP rally be completed soon.

Singh, who is likely to give a statement in Parliament on the issue, held a meeting with Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and city Police Commissioner B S Bassi.  They briefed the Minister about yesterday's incident.  

Singh said that the probe should be completed as soon as possible as it was a “sensitive” matter, officials said.  He also directed that necessary steps be taken to ensure that such an incident does not recur.  The farmer from Rajasthan committed suicide at the rally in full public view in the presence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Jantar Mantar here.

The incident triggered a blame game among political rivals with demands being made that a case of murder be filed against AAP which had organised a rally against the Centre's land acquisition ordinance.

The Home Minister had yesterday directed Delhi Police to probe the incident.
