As per the statement given by the police about the farmer leaders’ creating nuisance, it was entirely a ‘preplanned objective’.
“Their preplanned objective of not following the mutually agreed route and the timing of the commencement of the so-called parade was to disrupt the Republic Day Parade and the protesters resorted to the above said acts, and their gathering was also in violation of the guidelines in view of COVID-19”.
The violence also caused damage to several public and private properties. Meanwhile, the police personnel has tightened the security around different border points as the farmers continue their protest.
