"The police handed over Anandpal's body to his daughter Yogita Singh and maternal uncle at their hometown Sanvrad in Nagaur district," Additional SP Churu Keshar Singh Shekhawat said.

The family members had been demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the encounter and were not accepting the body unless the government referred the case to the investigating agency.

However, after fresh post-mortem at the Churu district hospital on Friday following a court direction on the application of Anandpal's mother, the family members accepted the body.

"Elaborate security arrangements are in place in Ladnu sub division where the village is situated," SP Nagaur Paris Anil Deshmukh said.

Anandpal, who had managed to escape from custody of police while being taken back to a high security prison in Ajmer from a court in Nagaur in September 2015, had taken a shelter in a house in Churu.

He was killed in an encounter with police last week.
