Heavy police settlement throughout the day in Delhi due to Delhi Chalo protest

In view of the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march in protest against the new agricultural laws, there was a heavy police settlement throughout the day on Thursday. Apart from Delhi Police, several companies of additional security forces were deployed on almost all the borders. Due to the border seal, no driver, even people walking on foot, were allowed to enter Delhi without investigation. Although the farmers moving from Punjab to Delhi were stopped at different places in Haryana, but in support of these farmers, some nearby farmers continued to reach the borders of Delhi. They were not allowed to enter Delhi. Throughout the day, the Delhi Police kept in touch with the Haryana and UP Police throughout the day to ensure that there was no lapse in security. At the same time, Delhi Police Commissioner SN Srivastava reached the Singhu border to take stock of the security arrangements. He appealed to the farmers through the media to return.

A senior Delhi Police official said that due to Corona, any kind of sit-in demonstration in the capital is banned. Because of this, the Delhi Police Commissioner appealed to the farmers not to come to Delhi. Despite this, more than 500 farmer organizations from several states, including Punjab, Haryana, were called to travel the capital on November 26 and 27 to pressurize the central government. In view of this, the Delhi Police made strict security arrangements on all borders along the border of Haryana and UP. Even Joint Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner of Police in some places officers up to the rank of Special CP were seen standing on the border. The police force with water cannon, tear gas and lathis on the border remained alert.

Kalindi Kunj, Mayur Vihar-Chilla Border, DND Border, Ghazipur Border, Anand Vihar, Noida-Mayur Vihar Border, Seemapuri, Bhopura, Loni and other borders in Delhi have also strong arrangements.
