New Delhi: On January 26, violence took place in the capital Delhi. The tricolor was insulted at the Red Fort, while around 394 Delhi Police personnel were injured in this violence. Some of them are still hospitalized. One of these jawans is also DCP North operator Constable Sandeep, who was badly injured in this violence. In a special conversation with ABP News, Constable Sandeep told that his duty was with DCP North that day. Top officers of DCP and Police were present at the Red Fort, when the tractors of the farmers reached there and broke the barricade and entered inside the Red Fort.
Constable Sandeep says, ‘DCP sahib and all the high officials were present there. The farmers came by tractor and broke the barricade of the Red Fort and stood in the courtyard of the Red Fort and a large number of farmers reached the Rampaid, from where the Prime Minister makes a speech. Senior officers were talking to them to unload them there, but those people were not coming down and were creating trouble.
Sandeep says that the force was ordered to go inside the Red Fort. The situation was worsening a lot. When the force started convincing the miscreants, they were infuriated and started attacking the police force. According to Sandeep, weapons were also present with the miscreants. Some had sticks in their hands and some had spears. Swords were also present with the people there. Constable Sandeep claims that the miscreants were also intoxicated.
Sandeep told, ‘There were thousands of people. The commotion lasted a long time. The police stopped and those people kept on killing. Nobody was ready to understand. Our high officials were explaining in a very restrained manner and we were also briefed that we have to talk to them very sparingly so that the Innocent people there are not harmed in any way. The Red Fort is our historical heritage, any event happening there poses a problem for the nation.
Sandeep said, ‘I myself am the son of a farmer but farmers are not so violent. If an animal enters the field, we do not kill it either. I do not think the farmer will ever be killed. With this, Sandeep told that Home Minister Amit Shah also came to meet. He encouraged a lot and said that you have done very good duty. With this, he asked to get well soon and be posted in the security of Delhi.
