Protesting farmers on Tuesday swarmed the Red Fort during a 'tractor rally' on Republic Day amid police attempts to block them from proceeding towards central Delhi, barged into the 17th-century monument, climbed up the ramparts, and waved farmer union flags and banners and even hoisted a pennant. All this happened after thousands of farmers riding tractors and motorcycles thronged the otherwise busy ITO intersection. Police and other security personnel deployed at the Red Fort were seen lathi-charging the protesters at the monument even as the former were clearly outnumbered by the farmers. Here's a look at the protest through pictures.
