Police say forces inimical to India intend to hijack, disrupt farmers’ tractor rally

New Delhi, January 25

Noting that there are intelligence inputs suggesting that Pakistan’s ISI and a few “rogue elements linked to separatist Khalistani groups” intend to hijack and disrupt the farmers’ tractor rally in Delhi on Tuesday, Delhi Police officials on Monday said the leaders among the protesters had been asked to stay alert and try to be “eyes and ears” of the security agency.

The officials said a huge conspiracy is being hatched by forces inimical to India to disrupt the farmers’ tractor rally and thereby give a bad name to the country.

In line with this, Delhi Police on Sunday had claimed that more than 300 Twitter handles had been traced to Pakistan that had been created to sabotage the rally, for which permission was granted after a meeting between the senior police officials and protesting farmers.
