New Delhi, Jan 29 (TIWN) Situation at Delhi's Haryana border at Singhu quickly deteriorated on Friday afternoon as villagers clashed with protesting farmers after one thing led to another and the mob was seen armed with stones, lathis, swords. A police officer among others was injured.

The situation remained grim and tense at Singhu border even as a Mahapanchayat of farmers was still underway in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar.  Group of men, who claimed to be from nearby villages and wanted to get the over two-month old road blockage cleared came to blows with the farmers after heated arguments and then locals damaged tents, leading to stone pelting from both sides. Soon some people were also seen armed with swords and lathis, and as police came to the rescue, several were injured.  As police resorted to mild lathi-charge to bring the situation under control, Alipur Police station SHO Pradeep Kumar was injured in the violence allegedly with a sharp-edged object.
