The Delhi Police registered four FIRs in connection with the protesting farmers’ tractor parade in the national capital. Three FIRs were registered in east district and one in Shahdara district on Tuesday.
The tractor parade was meant to highlight the demands of the farmer unions but created chaos on Republic day as tens of thousands of protesters, wielding sticks and holding the tricolour and union flags, broke barriers, clashed with police and entered the city from various points to lay siege to the Red Fort and climb the flagpole on Republic Day.
In a statement, the city police said protesting farmers violated the pre-decided conditions agreed upon for their tractor parade. The farmers began tractor rally before scheduled time. They also resorted to violence and vandalism. The protest led to extensive damage to public property.
