Delhi border security increased after SKMs nationwide protest call

New Delhi: Following a nationwide call for a protest by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) in support of the nation's top grapplers protesting against the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, Delhi Police have tightened security measures along the city's borders, including Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur.

"Additional police personnel have been deployed, and extra checkpoints were set up to prevent any undesirable occurrences," a senior police official said on Thursday.

"Security has been heightened, and we have increased the presence of police personnel while setting up additional checkpoints at Delhi's borders. Our objective is to ensure the maintenance of law and order and prevent any untoward incidents," said another officer.

The officer also mentioned that vehicles entering Delhi from neighbouring states are being subjected to thorough inspections at the borders.

On Tuesday, the SKM had announced demonstrations and effigy burning of the WFI chief at villages and town centres on June 5, the day RSS workers and Mahants have called a rally in support of Brij Bhushan in Ayodhya.

The SKM also condemned the brutal repression of the wrestlers' protest on May 28, the day women wrestlers had called Mahila mahapanchayat.

"Modi Government's action against the wrestlers protesting against sexual harassment proves its anti-woman and anti-people agenda. The crackdown against the protest infringes the citizens right to protest which has been repeatedly upheld by the Supreme Court," it said.

The SKM also demanded the withdrawal of the FIR against protestors and the arrest of Brij Bhushan.
