Supreme Court to hear public interest petitions related to violence in Delhi

New Delhi, 2/2 (AO Bureau): Public interest petitions will be heard on Wednesday against the violence that took place on January 26 during the Kisan agitation against the three agricultural laws passed by the Center.  A bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Justice SA Bobde, will hear it.

On January 27, two petitions were filed in the Supreme Court regarding the violence in the tractor parade of farmers on Republic Day. One petition has requested the formation of a commission for investigation, while the second petition has requested the media to direct that it should not declare any farmer as a ‘terrorist’ without proof.

Thousands of farmers took out a tractor parade on Tuesday in favor of the demand for withdrawal of the three new agricultural laws of the center, but soon chaos spread in the streets of Delhi. At many places, the protesters broke the police barricades. They also clashed with the police. People involved in the demonstration vandalized vehicles and put a religious flag on the Red Fort.
