Thousands of protesting farmers reached Red Fort after breaching police barricades.

According to Indian Express, one person was killed at protests in ITO. His tractor turned turtle after being shot at.

The Wire’s journalist Ismat Ara tweeted that the farmers claimed that a bullet has hit the farmer driving a tractor.

The incident took place near the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg where a toppled tractor was also seen.

Farmers protesting against Narendra Modi government’s new agricultural laws breached barricades and clashed with police in the capital, who fired tear gas to restrain them, shortly after a convoy of tractors trundled through the Delhi’s outskirts.
