Denying any formal orders to incorporate such metal armoury, Delhi Police clarified that the policemen in the images were from one part of Delhi and they took the initiative on their own. The officer said there was no formal order to equip forces with these weapons. Sources said the unit, which is from Shahdara, has been asked to explain its new “gear” and the need for it.

A local officer is said to have asked for these metal lathis without approval from senior officers and as soon as senior officers found out about them, they were taken back. There is no scheme to arm policemen with steel lathis.

In the past few days, more farmers have arrived in the capital along with their tractors to join protesting colleagues at the Delhi borders.
