A Sadhu self-immolated amid a protest over illegal stone mining in Bharatpur’s Deeg in Rajasthan on Wednesday. This comes a day after another seer climbed atop a mobile tower demanding a ban on it.

The Sadhu, identified as Vijay Das, was referred to Jaipur from Bharatpur in critical condition, officials said.

Earlier, the seer who had climbed atop the mobile tower came down after the incident and peace talks are going on, police said.

Meanwhile, the authorities extended the suspension of mobile internet services by a day.

“A sadhu, Vijay Das, who was standing away from the protest site all of sudden set himself afire today. A police team rushed to him with blankets to douse the fire. The sadhu was rushed to Bharatpur from where he was referred to Jaipur owing to his condition,” Khoh SHO Vinod Kumar said.

Superintendent of Bharatpur Medical College Dr Jigyasa Sahni said the seer has been referred to Jaipur after first aid. She said the seer had 80 per cent burn injuries.

Mobile internet services were suspended till Thursday as a precautionary measure. Bharatpur Divisional Commissioner Sanwarmal Verma said the suspension of mobile internet services has been extended by one more day amid the latest developments.
