On Wednesday, the two legislators began a dharna, alleging that Bhajanlal was beaten to death by the policemen. Police had, however, said it was a case of accidental death as the driver had jumped off the tractor. Congress MLA Harish Meena, who represents Deoli-Uniara constituency of Tonk district, began the dharna in Nagar fort with his demands and he was later joined by BJP Jahazpur MLA Gopi Chand Meena. They converted their dharna into an indefinite hunger strike on Saturday after their demands were not met. Earlier, Tonk collector RC Dhenwal had announced a compensation of Rs 13 lakh to the family of the deceased. He had also said murder charges would be slapped against the accused policemen and a CID probe would be carried out in the matter. Following the state government’s assurances, the two lawmakers had called off their protest on Monday. However, they had restarted their dharna on Tuesday, accusing the administration of changing the members of a medical board conducting the post-mortem of the body. This prompted Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot to intervene. Pilot visited the dharna site in Tonk in the afternoon and gave necessary directions to officials. “The medical board was changed today. We objected and restarted our dharna. After the intervention of the deputy CM, the board which was decided last night conducted the post-mortem and the body was handed over to family members for funeral,” BJP MLA Gopi Chand Meena said.
Southampton: Communication had been the biggest USP in Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan’s enormously successful opening partnership and the Indian vice-captain wants to create the same level of understanding with KL Rahul by the time World Cup reaches business end. Dhawan’s fractured left-hand has put Rahul in the line of fire in a stage like World Cup but his senior opening partner is confident that they will slowly be able to build up the right level of communication required in such big event.

That is his comfort. He is playing his first game as an opener here, so I wanted to make sure that he’s comfortable,” Rohit said while making it clear what his responsibilities are as a senior player Also Read – Mary Kom enters quarterfinals, Saweety Boora bows out of World C’ships Rahul, on his part, knows what a big opportunity it is and he is ready to fill in the big boots of Dhawan till the time he comes back (if at all in this tournament). “Obviously Shikhar and Rohit for the last three or four years have been such a dangerous combination having done so well. They have owned those positions. I had to wait for my chance and I am just happy that I got to bat in the top of the order,” Rahul told reporters in mixed zone. However, during their stand of 136, there were a couple of occasions when Rohit could have nearly got run out primarily because of the lack of communication between the two. But the champion opener is game for this new challenge as that’s what international cricket is all about clearing new obstacles every passing day. “These are the sort of challenges you face — the understanding of when he wants to run that two, when I want to take that single, and things like that. “These are very small little things, but of course, eventually they add up to a whole lot for the team because at that point we never wanted to get run out. That was the last thing in our mind to do that,” said Rohit. But since they batted for nearly 24 overs (23.5 to be precise), they had communicated a lot and it’s only going to improve from here on, feels Rohit “But we had a lot of communication (during game against Pakistan) while we were batting, so slowly we will build on it. Now that I know he’s going to open for the next few games as well. “So that conversation between us is really, really important, and I hope that continues because it’s going to only help both of us.” For Rahul, the biggest challenge against Pakistan was to play out Mohammed Amir’s first spell, which they did with a fair degree of success “Look I mean, with the new ball against any bowler, you have to see off the first few overs and didn’t know what to expect from the wicket as it was under covers for the first two days. It was important that we saw off the first spell,” the talented Karnataka batsman said. Amir, whether it was Champions Trophy final in 2017 or the Asia Cup T20, a year before that, he had always struck in the very first over that he bowled but this time around the Indians had done their homework. “We needed to focus from ball one as he has earlier done damage in the first over itself. We were switched on from ball one and we didn’t take too many chances in the first few overs. We gave their bowlers and the ball the respect it deserved and carried on from there,” Rahul said.
