A priest from India's Haryana, Baba Ram Singh, who had joined the on going farmers' protest in the country, died by suicide on Wednesday at the Delhi border, where he had been staying.
In a note, he said he was sacrificing his life "to express anger and pain against the government's injustice," reports the NDTV.
"Have seen pain of farmers fighting to ensure their rights and struggling on roads... feeling a lot of pain as the government is not doing justice... to do injustice is a sin and to tolerate it is also a sin," the note left by the 65-year-old read.
The 65-year-old had shot himself, the police said.
"He was rushed to Park hospital in Panipat and was declared dead on arrival by the doctors," said the Deputy Police Commissioner of Sonipat.
His body is now on way to Karnal, where he lived, the officer added.
