New Delhi, January 26
A protester died when his tractor overturned at Delhi’s ITO—a scene of chaos during Tuesday’s tractor protest—Delhi Police said in a statement.
Protesters who deviated from a planned protest route tore down barricades and clashed with police as they made their way to Delhi’s iconic Red Fort, another scene of chaos on Tuesday.
Famers’ unions have condemned the protest and appealed to protesters to get back to the planned route. The Ministry of Home Affairs meanwhile is currently holding a meeting with Delhi Police to review law and order.
