The violence during the farmers' tractor rally took a serious turn when one of the protesters died. The incident took place at Minto Road in central Delhi on Tuesday afternoon.

A video, shared by news agencies, showed a group of farmers chasing the policemen at ITO using their tractors. Shortly after the clip emerged, the death of one of the farmers driving the tractors was reported.

Police said the man was driving the tractor and he came under the vehicle as it overturned.

The farmers draped the body in the tricolour and kept it at the ITO crossing, not allowing the police to send it for post-mortem.

The farmers also lashed out at the mediapersons covering the incident.

A group of protesters, meanwhile, entered the Red Fort on Tuesday afternoon and waved flags from the ramparts. A few of them even climbed on the poles installed in the premises and hoisted their flags.

 

Traffic was affected in several parts of the national capital on Tuesday due to the farmers' tractor rally.
