Family members of Delhi Police personnel who were injured in the tractor rally violence on Republic Day, staged a sit-in demonstration at Shaheedi Park demanding justice for the injured officers on Saturday.
Later they were joined by retired and current officers of Delhi Police.
As Delhi Police’s probe is underway, the family members of the injured personnel are demanding justice for them, asking that those who indulged in violence be identified and duly punished.
A protesting policeman said: “We also want protection. Just because we are in the police force doesn’t mean we can be attacked. We were on duty and unarmed… But people who were a part of that rally, some of them cannot really be called farmers. They were miscreants”.
More than 300 police personnel were injured after they were brutally attacked by agitating farmers on the eve of Republic Day.
The Delhi Police has registered 25 FIRs so far in connection with the violence and has also lodged an FIR under sections of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and section 124A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered.
On Friday, Delhi Police served notices to 12 farmer leaders, including Buta Singh Burjgill, Darshan Pal Singh, Rakesh Tikait, Shamsher Pandher and Satnam Pannu, to join an investigation into the violence.
