Police said they were removing the protesters who had been sitting at Jantar Mantar for a long time in view of security arrangements ahead of Independence Day. The protesters, however, claimed that they had sent an intimation to Delhi Police about the march.

AAP MLA from Timarpur Pankaj Pushkar alleged that police used lathicharge and assaulted the workers but the police denied the charge. "Our men did not resort to lathicharge as was being alleged," a police official said.
The 'tractor march', which is part of the ongoing farmers' movement by Swaraj Abhiyan led by Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, started yesterday.
Pushkar said members of Swaraj Abhiyan were busy with the preparations last night when at 11 PM few policemen including six men in civil clothes started dispersing protesters by resorting to lathicharge.
"I and Yogendra rushed to the spot in sic minutes to find six men in civil clothes who claimed to be policemen beating our volunteers. We caught hold of one of them and asked for his identity card but the man started pushing us,”  Pushkar said, adding, "Suddenly on someone's instruction, these people started fleeing from the spot. In the scuffle, six of our volunteers were injured and are admitted in RML hospital."
Yadav expressed shock over the incident. "Shocked! Policemen beat up our volunteers to bleed. 6 of them seriously injured. Admitted in  RML hospital. Police telling blatant lies. These goons in civil dress under police protection attacked our volunteers at Jantar Mantar (sic)," Yadav tweeted last night.
