Farmers, who were seen as friendly and peaceful for more than 60 days as they waited for government to accept their terms, suddenly left behind a trail of vandalism, violence, holliganism as they hoisted their flags at the 17th century iconic Red Fort after running amok through the capital clashing with the police personnel in several parts of the national capital.
A tractor march in national capital turned violent on Tuesday, after protestors broke through barriers, clashed with police, overturned vehicles and went on rampage at the Red Fort.
Centre also deployed additional paramilitary troops in national capital to restore peace, maintain law & order after violence and snapped internet in parts of Delhi-NCR.
A farmer named Navneet Singh dies after a tractor in which he was travelling turns turtle. However, the farmers claimed that he was shot dead. Farmers sit with the dead body at ITO over the death of the farmer.
Farm union leaders condemned the violence, and distanced themselves from “anti-social elements” they claimed had infiltrated the protest, insisting that the vast majority of protestors remained peaceful. They vowed that their agitation demanding the repeal of three contentious farm reform laws would continue, but admitted that Tuesday’s violence could hurt them in negotiations with the government.
