Internet services in the Delhi border areas of Singhu, Ghazipur, and Tikri – epicentres of the farmers’ weeks-long protest against the centre’s agriculture laws – will be suspended from 11 pm for a period of 48 hours, the Union Home Ministry said in a notification issued Saturday afternoon.

“… it is necessary and expedient to order the temporary suspension of internet services in the areas of Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri, and their adjoining areas in the NCT of Delhi from 11 pm on January 29 to 11 pm on January 31,” the ministry notification said.

The protest, which took place last Tuesday during the anniversary of Republic Day, was marred by violence when groups of farmers and others clashed with police forces during a march with tractors; Where the police resorted to firing tear gas and using batons to control the situation, which led to the killing of a farmer and wounding hundreds of policemen.
