Four police officials, including a Deputy Superintendent of Police, were injured on Sunday in Fatehabad district in Haryana when Delhi-bound Jat community protesters clashed with them.
The police force was trying to stop them from moving towards Delhi. The clash took place on the Sirsa-Hisar-Delhi highway when the protesters, who were on tractor-trolleys, were stopped.

Police used force, including tear gas, as the protesters pelted them with stones.
Authorities in Haryana have imposed a ban on movement of tractor-trolleys in districts bordering Delhi to foil a call given by Jat leaders to lay seige to Delhi and hold a protest outside Parliament.
