Hitting out at farmer leaders over lynching of a man near a protest site in Kundli, the BJP on Friday said "anarchists" behind these protests need to be exposed as they are doing a great disservice to the nation.

The body of the man with a hand chopped off was found tied to a metal barricade in Haryana's Sonipat district on Friday.

In a video clip that has gone viral on social media platforms, some Nihangs are seen standing as the man lies on the ground in a pool of blood with his severed hand lying next to him.

Taking on farmer union leader Rakesh Tikait and political activist Yogendra Yadav, BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya in a tweet said had Tikait not justified mob lynching in Lakhimpur, with Yadav, sitting next to him, maintaining sanctimonious silence, "the gory murder of a youth at Kundali border would not have happened. Anarchists behind these protests in the name of famers need to be exposed".

Strongly condemning the incident, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said it is a ghastly murder. And this is not the job of the farmers, who will give their life to other citizens.
