HC , Framer's Protest

While listening to an anticipatory bail application filed by one of the activists in the Farmer’s Protest, the Delhi HC observed that despite elapsing of 8 months after the events which constitute the cause of action took place, the investigation was progressing as per the convenience of the investigating authority and not as per the mandate of law. The court also observed that none of 35 farm leaders named in the FIR has been asked to join the investigation till date. The Farmer’s protest has been on at the capital city, with several farmers assembling near the capital city to protest the controversial farm laws which supposedly has the sheer potential to topple a fixed base price for crops and to turn the reins of crop prices into the hands of corporate giants. The incidents following the background of this incident transpired on 26th January, 2021 – India’s Republic Day, where farmer protesters broke through barricades and swarmed into the Red Fort.
