The attackers tore the tents of the women's camp, threw petrol bombs and set them on fire and instead of the attackers, the Delhi Police lathicharged the farmers, fired gas shells.

The leaders said that the police cases against agricultural laborers in Delhi and across the country during the Delhi Morcha were not withdrawn. Today's Morcha demanded that all the cases be withdrawn at the earliest and the tools seized on 26 January to be returned. (ANI)
