US Advisory for Embassy officials in Delhi after violence by farmers

In the wake of the violence in the national capital, the US Embassy in Delhi advised American government personnel to avoid areas where clashes have been reported between farmers and police, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large groups, protests or demonstrations.

A tractor march protesting the three new farm laws descended into violence as tens of thousands of protesters clashed with police in multiple places, leading to chaos in well-known landmarks of Delhi and suburbs. One person was killed and several were injured in the clashes.
