The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of farmer outfits protesting against the farm laws, has threatened to lay siege to the Karnal mini-secretariat today if its demands were not met. Earlier on August 28, the Haryana Police had lathicharged a group of farmers disrupting traffic movement on a national highway while heading towards Karnal to protest against a BJP meeting. The SKM said a murder case should be registered against IAS officer Ayush Sinha who was caught on tape allegedly telling policemen to "break heads" of protesting farmers. Sinha, who was later transferred in a reshuffle also involving some other IAS officers, has now been posted as the additional secretary in the Citizen Resources Information Department.
