Red Fort violence: Centre asks police to issue look-out notices against farmer leaders

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has asked Delhi Police to issue lookout notices against the farmer leaders who have been named in the multiple FIRs the police have registered in connection with the violence during tractor rally on January 26.

A decision in this regard was taken after a high-level meeting in the MHA, where it was decided to direct Delhi Police to ask the accused farmer leaders to submit their passports, sources said.

Showcause notices have also been served on the farmer leaders in which they have been asked to explain as to why action should not be taken against them when they have breached the agreement with Delhi Police for granting permission to hold the rally, sources said, adding that they had been told to respond within three days.
