Amritsar, February 18

Human Rights Bodies have sought the Supreme Court’s intervention to stop the Haryana Police and Central forces from using pellet guns against the protesting farmers on their way to Delhi.

The human rights bodies included the Khalra Mission Organisation (KMO), the Punjab Human Rights Organisation (PHRO) and the Human Rights Justice Forum.

In a letter to the Chief Justice of India (CJI), the human rights bodies from Punjab demanded its intervention as policemen were using pellet guns against farmers holding a peaceful agitation. Leaders of these bodies alleged that three farmers lost their eyes and several of them were undergoing treatment at various hospitals in Punjab and Chandigarh.

They said the BJP-led Haryana Government through police and Central forces have been introducing neo-liberal capitalist model.
