The leaders have been given 3 days to reply to the notice and provide reasons for why the violence happened when they had taken responsibility for the parade.


The Delhi Police is holding farmers’ leaders responsible for the violence that occurred in the national capital and also for breaching the agreement between the Delhi Police and the Farmers’ Leaders regarding the rules of the tractor parade. The farmers, meanwhile, have said that the protest was sabotaged by people who they have no sympathies with and regret the violence.
