Police said the Congress leaders were stopped from marching towards the Haryana CM’s official residence but they resisted following which additional force was deployed.

High drama ensued when the workers clashed with police near the parking lot close to the CM residence resulting in injuries to four policemen.

Pargat Singh said they were protesting against the use of force on agitating farmers by the Haryana police.

“The governments of Punjab and Haryana suppressed the farmer’s voice and closed state borders. The way the Punjab government banned internet services in seven districts shows it is working at the behest of BJP,” he said.

The FIR against the Congress leaders was registered under Sections 188 (disobedience of order promulgated by public servant), 332 (voluntarily causing harm to public servant) and 353 (use of criminal force in public demonstrations) of the Indian Penal Code.
