Protester Vikram Dhillon climbed atop a 50-ft-high tower around 9 am and demanded to meet Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann to resolve the issue. Police and fire officials reached the spot with a sky ladder to rescue the middle-aged man, but he was adamant on meeting the Chief Minister.

Fire officials managed to bring him down around 1.30 pm and hydrated him before whisking him away to a hospital for a medical check-up.
