30 farmers detained in Hisar after clash with Haryana police

Farmers protest: The ‘Delhi Chalo’ march that was taken up by the farmers in demands including a guarantee law on minimum support price (MSP), has come to a temporary halt following the death of a farmer in a clash with the Haryana police on Wednesday. However, there is anticipation that the farmers will deliberate on their next course of action to further the movement today.

A 21-year-old farmer died due to a head injury at the Khanauri border in Haryana after protestors clashed with the police. The Punjab government has shown its solidarity with the farmers, saying that they will push for strict action against the cop who was responsible for the incident.

Haryana Police initially declared their intention to invoke the National Security Act (NSA) against leaders spearheading the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march by farmers, but later on Friday, they announced the withdrawal of this decision. Earlier, the Ambala police had said their implementation of detentions under section 2(3) of the National Security Act, 1980, aimed at maintaining law and order and preventing criminal activities amidst the protests.

Additionally, the state police department emphasised their commitment to compensating for any damage to government or private property during the protests by seizing the property and bank accounts of the protestors.
