Farmers Say Captured Man Planned To Disrupt Tractor Rally, Kill Protest Leaders

A man is being questioned by the Haryana police after protesting farmers alleged that a conspiracy was hatched to kill four of their leaders and create disturbance during their proposed tractor parade in Delhi on January 26, officials said on Saturday. The man was presented before reporters by the protesting farmer leaders on Friday night. A police official said the man, stated to be around 21 years of age, was being quizzed in Sonipat by the Crime Branch of the state police. He said the man was residing in Sonipat and had no previous criminal record. “He was not carrying any arms or ammunition. We are questioning him, but nothing has so far been found that points to any kind of conspiracy, as is being alleged,” the official said, adding that further investigations are underway. At the Singhu border press conference late on Friday night, the farmer leaders presented the man who claimed that his accomplices were asked to pose as policemen and baton-charge the crowd during the proposed tractor parade in the national capital on Republic Day.
