A police official was stabbed during the ongoing farmers’ agitation at Delhi’s Singhu border on Friday amid simmering tension between protesters and local residents.

The Delhi Police station house officer (SHO) of Alipur Pradeep Paliwal was stabbed during the stone-pelting which ensued between the farmers and locals in the area, who have asked the protesters to vacate the premises. At least two people, including a police official, were injured in the violence.

The Delhi Police also had to fire multiple rounds of tear gas shells in a bid to stop the two groups from turning violent. The situation at Singhu border remained tense even after the stone-pelting stopped.
