Farmers Protest, ITO violence, tractor rally: The situation in Delhi appears to be spiralling out of control as farmers reneged on their promise of a peaceful rally and resorted to violence as police tried to stop their entry into roads that were not part of the agreed route. Visuals showed a tense situation at the ITO intersection as thousands of farmers tried to move towards the Red Fort despite no permission from the Delhi Police. The routes for the tractor rally were pre-decided. But farmers today deviated from the agreed upon routes, leading to a violent confrontation with the police. #WATCH Violence continues at ITO in central Delhi, tractors being driven by protestors deliberately try to run over police personnel pic.twitter.com\/xKIrqANFP4 A number of protesters surrounded police personnel and forced them to retreat until more force arrived at the spot.
