The head constable was associated with the office of assistant commissioner of police. He was originally from Rajasthan. He is survived by his wife Poonam, two daughters and a 9-year-old son. All three children are still young and studying in schools.

Ratan Lal had joined Delhi Police as a constable in the year 1998. He was living in Amrit Vihar with his wife and three children.

The relatives of Ratan Lal say they have received the shocking news of his death but they still do not know whether he died of a bullet injury or on being hit by a stone.

Delhi Police personnel are still visiting Ratan Lal’s house in Amrit Vihar for condolence.

Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal tweeted as soon as he received the information of the death of Head Constable Ratan Lal that he was saddened by the news. He appealed to the people to renounce violence. He said nobody stood to benefit from these riots.

Meanwhile in northeast Delhi, Jafrabad, Maujpur and Bhajanpura are still highly disturbed areas. Off and on, stone-pelting and arson disturbs the momentary peace in these neighbourhoods even amid police patrols and flag marches by paramilitary forces.
