The UP police removed the farmers forcibly after 40 days of continuous agitation against the central government’s new farm laws. It took place in the presence of the DM and the SP, Baghpat. Following the orders of the District Magistrate and the Superintendent of Police, cops reached the protest site and removed the farmers. Scores of protesting farmers were sitting at the protest site on the National Highway 709b. “These farmers had blocked a side of the National Highway for over a month. Today, the NHI wrote a letter to the district administration to vacate the highway. Acting on the same letter, the police administration has evacuated the highway,” ADM Baghpat Amit Kumar said.
