A group of around 200 people, threw stones and vandalised tents erected by farmers at the Delhi-Haryana border in Singhu, the epicenter of farmers' protests since over two months. A police official was injured in the violence. The sudden violence this afternoon at the protest site, which has been tense since the Republic Day violence, prompted the police to use tear gas shells and resort to lathi-charge. Farmers too appealed for calm.

It is unclear how the group of people managed to enter the site of the farmers' protest. The people who entered the protest site also tried to vandalise other infrastructure such as farmers' washing machines. The police was seen trying to keep the vandals away from the protesting farmers. Two other key border points - Tikri and the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border at Ghazipur - have also been placed under heavy security and remain tense.
