Following a complaint lodged by Lal Singh Balmiki, resident of Chandokhar Mazra (Lohri Ka Pura) village, two local men, Lokendra and Anil Singh Tomar, were arrested, police said.
District Superintendent of Police Prashant Khare said the accused had encroached on the one-acre land earmarked for village crematorium, and had even sown wheat there last year.
After Mr Balmiki's father Kaptan Singh (65) died yesterday, the accused stopped him from cremating his father on this land.
Eventually, he performed the last rites of his father on a government land near his house.
Following the incident, a team led by Collector Ilayaraja T removed the encroachment from the land reserved for crematorium.
