Farmer protest, Delhi Police
Police install iron nails as security tightens at Ghazipur Border during the ongoing farmer protest against the new farm laws, in New Delhi on Monday.

The on Thursday removed the nails that were placed near the farmers' protest site at the Ghazipur border as a security measure.

The police had taken the step in view of the violence during the farmers' protest tractor march on Republic day.

The nails were removed around 11 a.m.

When the workers were asked about this, they did not give any reply and the policemen at the barricades also remained silent.

The action seems to have been taken after MPs from 10 opposition parties reached the Ghazipur border to meet the farmers. But they could not reach the UP gate from the Delhi border due to the bed of nails placed at the barricades.
