Security Measures at Delhi Borders
Thousands of farmers participating in the ‘Delhi Chalo’ protest march have been met with robust security arrangements as they approach Delhi. Section 144 has been enforced, restricting public gatherings and the entry of tractor trolleys into the city. Nearly 2,000 security personnel, including units from the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and the Crime Branch, have been deployed to maintain peace and order.

Haryana authorities have bolstered security along the state’s border with Punjab, employing concrete blocks, iron nails, and barbed wire in key locations such as Ambala, Jind, Fatehabad, Kurukshetra, and Sirsa. Riot control vehicles, including water cannons, have been stationed at Punjab and Haryana borders to deter approaching demonstrators.

Multi-layered barricades fortified with concertina wires, nails, concrete blocks, and containers have been erected at the Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders to prevent demonstrators from breaching the city’s defenses. Drones are being utilized for aerial surveillance to monitor the situation.

Over 50 companies of Delhi Police and paramilitary forces, equipped with tear gas launchers, bulletproof vests, helmets, batons, and modern weapons, are stationed at crucial points along the borders. Advanced weaponry is on standby to handle any potential escalation during the protest march.

The Delhi Police have issued prohibitory orders prohibiting tractors, trucks, and other vehicles from entering the city in procession for a month. Traffic restrictions have been implemented at the Singhu, Ghazipur, and Tikri borders to impede demonstrators from entering Delhi.
