New Delhi: Three days after the violence gripped the national capital on Republic day as protesting farmers and Delhi Police clashed in parts of the city, the cops on Friday arrested nine people and sent them to Tihar Jail in connection with Burari ground protest on Thursday, according to Delhi Police personnel.
The protesters are accused of instigating violence by raising provoking slogans and forcing entry in the iconic Red Fort, besides they also tore uniforms of police personnel, alleged the police.
Investigating the January 26 events, Crime Branch has also appealed to the media to provide them the footage captured during the violent protests, besides asking people to come to Old Delhi Police headquarters at ITO and record their statements or submit any evidence related to the R-Day protests.
Furthermore, a mobile number 8750871237 and a landline number 011-23490094 has also been issued by the police for giving information. An email id has also been provided by the probing agency for the people to contact them in case they have any evidence to share with them.
Posters with this appeal will be also put up at various places in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR).
The Crime Branch has reportedly also issued notices to the six farmers’ unions leaders to join the probe in connection with the rampage by the protesting farmers during their rally on Republic Day that left at least one person dead and several injured.
