Thousands on Wednesday attended the third day rituals of Gujjars, who died at Pilukapura in the ongoing agitation, in Bharatpur district of Rajasthan.

Special envoy of the Rajasthan government, SN Thanvi, said about 2,500 people attended the 'teey ki baithak' at Karwadi, which passed off peacefully.

Thanvi said the post-mortem of all seven bodies was completed and they were handed over to their kin along with those of 13 others.

He said barbed wire fencing is being put up on the feeder roads in Bharatpur and Karauli to stop the entry of people into Pilukapura, where community leader Kirori Singh Bainsla is leading the agitation.

Thanvi said that in order to maintain law and order, 10 columns of the army and 30 companies of security forces, comprising CRPF, RAC and BSF personnel continue to keep vigil.
