Fearing farmer protests, security beefed up at Delhi borders

Sep 20, 2020 16:05 IST

Security on the Delhi borders was beefed up on Sunday in view of the ongoing protests by farmers in neighbouring Punjab and Haryana against the three agricultural Bills. Reports said more police have been deployed in the border areas as a precautionary measure, including at Singhu border and GT-Karnal Road. Precautionary measures have also been taken on Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. Two companies of security forces have been deployed near Ghazipur and Ashok Nagar side to prevent the entry of farmers from western Uttar Pradesh. Farmers from nearby states are expected to arrive in Delhi to mark their protest, since different farmer organisations have given calls for protests over the proposed legislations.
