Jalandhar, September 27

A high drama was witnessed on Monday near PAP-Rama Mandi flyover in Jalandhar, when the agitating farmers stopped an Army convoy on routine exercise.

It took the convoy half an hour to cross the blockade after showing relevant documents to the farmers.

The incident took place around 7 am when the Army convoy coming from Amritsar wasn't allowed to move near the PAP flyover. The convoy with nearly a dozen Army trucks and jeeps was heading towards Rohtak in Haryana.

An officer leading the convoy asked the farmers at the protest site to remove the barricades.

The farmers lead by Bhartiya Kisan Union (Rajewal) allowed the Army personnel to pass after checking their documents and identities.

The convoy left the spot around 7.30 am.
