NEW DELHI — Apparently to scare the agitating farmers, shots were fired in the air by some unidentified drunk men sitting inside a car near the farmers’ protest site at the Singhu border on Sunday night.

Sonipat police  confirmed that no one was injured in the firing and that the vehicle has been identified and a search was underway to nab the perpetrators, reports IANS.

“Two to three men fired shots in the air at around 10.30 p.m., near the Singhu border. We have identified the vehicle which we think has a Chandigarh registration. Teams have been formed to arrest the men. We have gained inputs that the men were in an inebriated state,” a senior Haryana Police officer said.

A complaint has been filed at the Sonipat police station, according to the report.

It is now over three months that thousands of farmers have been protesting at Delhi’s borders with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, demanding a rollback of the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
