    Several farmers joined wrestlers’ protest against Wrestling Federation of India chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh in New Delhi on Monday. The farmers broke through police barricades in a bid to enter the protest venue. Videos show farmers climbing the barricades and pushing them away.

    Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Pranav Tayal said the incident occurred when some farmers were “in a hurry” to reach the dharna site. The barricades were removed to escort the farmers into the site and the meeting was being held peacefully. Police insisted that there was no clash with the protesters and that the cops at the site were facilitating the protesters and ensuring a peaceful gathering.

    The wrestlers are on a sit-in at Jantar Mantar since April 23 demanding action against the WFI chief over allegations of sexual harassment against him. Farmers in large numbers have gathered at the protest venue to express their solidarity with the protesting wrestlers.
