The farmers' agitation against the new agriculture reform laws took a tense turn today in Uttarakhand's Udham Singh Nagar.
A video footage shows the demonstrating farmers running a tractor over a barricade elected by the police.
Policemen trying to hold them back had a tough time stopping them and eventually had to give way to avoid a dangerous push down.
The protestors who were driving a green tractor charged the vehicle on the barricade. They ran down the barricade and this forced the policemen to stop the push down. They were on their way towards Delhi.
