Four Haryana cops injured in clash with Jats

Jat stir

Chandigarh, March 19: At least four police officials, including a Deputy Superintendent of Police, were injured on Sunday in Fatehabad district in Haryana when Delhi-bound Jat community protesters clashed with them.

The police force was trying to stop them from moving towards Delhi. The clash took place on the Sirsa-Hisar-Delhi highway when the protesters, who were on tractor-trolleys, were stopped.

Police used force, including tear gas, as the protesters pelted them with stones.

Authorities in Haryana have imposed a ban on movement of tractor-trolleys in districts bordering Delhi to foil a call given by Jat leaders to lay seige to Delhi and hold a protest outside Parliament.

Meanwhile, Jat leader Yashpal Malik is meeting Haryana Chief Minister Jagdish Singh Khattar to check out if discussion could resolve the issues. For, Jats on Wednesday had called on to spread their demonstration across Delhi on March 20. Delhi Administration has directed regulations for road as well as metro services for tomorrow.
