Bharat Bandh: Miscreants tried to mow down cop under tractor

Six unidentified youth riding a tractor tried to run over police personnel in Titavi area of Muzaffarnagar on Tuesday, the day of “Bharat Bandh”. The video of the incident has now gone viral over social media and the police have registered a case against them. SP Abhishek Yadav said the police were trying to ascertain the identity of the youths and arrest them.

The miscreants were doing stunts on the tractor and were stopped by the police. The policemen tried to persuade the miscreants to get off the vehicle. As the policemen caught hold of two miscreants, the undeterred driver tried to mow them down. The policemen had a narrow escape as the tractor just whizzed past them at a high speed. All the six youths riding the tractor managed to give a slip to the policemen who were trying to catch them.

Incidentally, the government has rejected the demand of the protesting farmers to withdraw three farm laws passed in September. Bharat Ekta Ugrahan, claiming to represent farmers, observed “Human Rights day” at Tikri. It also demanded some people arrested in Elgar Parishad case as also those arrested in Delhi riots.

It may be mentioned here that a pro-Khalistani group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), funded by Pakistan, had earlier declared a grant of $1 million for farmers in Punjab in lieu of their support for Khalistan. It has also been accused of being involved with some Chinese agents trying to undermine India.
