NEW DELHI: Union residence minister Amit Shah on Thursday visited two hospitals right here to investigate concerning the well being of the policemen injured within the violence that broke out in the course of the farmers’ tractor parade within the nationwide capital on Republic Day, officers mentioned.
Nearly 400 policemen had been injured in the course of the tractor parade of the farmers who’ve been protesting in opposition to three central farm legal guidelines at Delhi’s borders since November 2020.
“Meeting the injured Delhi Police personnel. We are pleased with their braveness and bravado,” Shah tweeted.
Union residence secretary Ajay Bhalla and Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava accompanied the house minister.
During the go to, Shah interacted with the injured policemen, gifted them fruits and took inventory of their well being progress from the medical doctors.
“Today, met the courageous policemen of Delhi Police within the hospital and wished them a speedy restoration. The complete nation is pleased with their bravery and restraint proven within the violence that befell on Republic Day,” he mentioned in one other tweet in Hindi.
The two hospitals the house minister visited had been Shushrut Trauma Centre and Teerath Ram Hospital, the place a number of the policemen had been admitted for therapy.
Both the hospitals are positioned in Civil Lines space within the metropolis.
The Delhi Police on Wednesday had alleged that farmer leaders made inflammatory speeches and had been concerned within the violence by agitating farmers in the course of the tractor parade that left 394 of its personnel injured, because it warned that no offender might be spared.
Tens of 1000’s of farmers broke limitations to storm the nationwide capital on Tuesday, their tractor parade to focus on their calls for dissolving into unprecedented scenes of anarchy as they fought with police, overturned automobiles and delivered a nationwide insult hoisting a non secular flag from the ramparts of the Red Fort, a privilege reserved for India’s tricolour.
From Rajpath to Red Fort, the day unfolded in scenes of contrasts. One that Indians have seen for seven a long time and the opposite that seared itself into collective reminiscence with its imagery of protesters demanding a repeal of the three farm legal guidelines storming the Mughal period monument, the centrepiece of India’s Independence Day celebrations.
Clashes broke out in a number of locations, resulting in violence in well-known landmarks of Delhi and its suburbs, amid waves of violence that ebbed and flowed by way of the day. A protester died after his tractor overturned close to ITO, one of many main flashpoints of bother.
