Advocate Digvijay Trivedi, who was junior to the lawyer representing the deceased Sadhus in the Palghar lynching case and also a part of the legal team in the case, died in a road accident on Wednesday.
The incident took place when the Digvijay Trivedi was on his way to the Dahanu Court to join Advocate PN Ojha, the lawyer representing the Sadhus killed in the Palghar mob lynching incident, in official capacity.
According to reports, Digvijay Trivedi, on his way to the Dahanu Court, was driving the car and was accompanied by a woman. He lost control of the car and crashed into the divider at around 10.30 am on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad national highway. Advocate Trivedi died on the spot, while the woman who was accompanying him in the car suffered serious injuries. She has been admitted to the hospital.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sambit Patra raised questions on the death of Advocate Trivedi and said, “VHP’s lawyer in the Palghar mob lynching case, Digvijay Trivedi, died in a road accident. This news is disturbing. Is it a mere coincidence that those who raised the Palghar case were either attacked by Congress workers or got FIRs registered against them? Well this is a matter of investigation!.”
पालघर में संतो की हत्या मामले में VHP के वकील श्री दिग्विजय त्रिवेदी की सड़क हादसे में मृत्यु हो गयी
यह खबर विचलित करने वाली है
क्या ये केवल संयोग है की जिन लोगों ने पालघर मामले को उठाया उनपर या तो कांग्रेस कार्यकर्ताओं ने हमला किया या FIR कराया?
ख़ैर ये जाँच का विषय है!

However, PN Ojha clarified that Trivedi was not associated with either VHP or BJP and added that an inspection report from the RTO will only give a clear picture of what was the exact cause behind Trivedi’s car accident.
