For the last two months, thousands of farmers have been demonstrating against the new agricultural laws.

A group of villagers who claimed to be local citizens, clashed with protesting farmers. They were demanding evacuation. Eyewitnesses saw the crowd armed with stones, sticks, swords. After that, the police had to fire tear gas shells to control the situation. In the midst of this ruckus, a man also attacked Alipore police station in-charge (SHO) Pradeep Paliwal with a sword.
After a long time, the police pacified the chaos. After that, a mahapanchayat of 40 villages started in Sonepat, Haryana. There were discussions about vacating the Singhu border.
