After an increase in the number of protesting farmers who came from Haryana two days ago, a team of Delhi Police’s Special Branch went there to do a ground analysis when they were attacked.
A Delhi Police team was allegedly attacked by the protesting farmers at the Singhu border on Thursday. The incident took place when the personnel were reportedly clicking pictures at the protest site.
After an increase in the number of protesters who came from Haryana two days ago, a team of Delhi Police’s Special Branch went there to do a ground analysis.
They alleged that one of the female protestors instigated others to carry the attack on them when they were taking pictures. Two assistant sub-inspectors — ASI Ramesh and Chandra Singh — were allegedly assaulted by a group of demonstrating farmers.
An FIR has been filed against unknown protestors at the Narela police station.
The number of protesting farmers had come down in Delhi after many left for Tohana in Haryana to demonstrate against the state’s police for arresting two farmers.
However, Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait had confirmed earlier this week that they would be returning to the Delhi borders after a successful meeting with the local administration.
“After meeting with the administration, all our demands have been accepted. Cases will be withdrawn. One person, who is still in jail, will be freed after formalities. We will go back to Delhi to fight against farm laws,” ANI quoted Tikait as saying.
Meanwhile, the farmers have decided to gherao all Raj Bhawans on June 26, to mark seven months of their protest against the Centre’s three new farm laws.
The farmers will hold demonstrations outside the official residences of the governors in respective states and show black flags during their June 26 protest, Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of over 40 farmer unions, announced on Friday.
Meanwhile, addressing the concerns of women protestors, farmer leader Suman Hooda said special committees will be formed by Saturday evening which will be dedicated to the women at the protest sites.
“We received some complaints from our women protesters. I want to assure them that these committees will only work to address any problems faced by them. Their contact numbers will also be shared by Sunday,” she said.
