New Delhi, January 29
Delhi Police fired teargas shells and also resorted to lathi-charge on Friday after the Delhi-Haryana’s Singhu border witnessed clashes between the agitating farmers and a large group of people claiming to be locals, who wanted the area to be cleared immediately.
The group arrived at the famers’ protest site and things came to blows as they demanded the area to be vacated by the agitators who have been at the site for more than two months.
The group asked them to clear the spot claiming that their presence was creating trouble.
After heated arguments, the group started attacking the tents of the farmers. Following this, there was stone-pelting between the two groups.
Delhi Police and the security personnel deployed at the Singhu border resorted to firing teargas shells to disperse the crowd at the protest site. The police also resorted to lathicharge to control the crowd.
Thousands of farmers from Punjab and Haryana have been protesting at the Singhu border since November 26 last year demanding the repealing of three farm laws. IANS
