Sonipat, November 26-27, 2020

Water cannons started up at full spate at Haryana's Sonepat around 11 pm amid the cold wave as the police tried to disperse a small group of Punjab farmers who would not be dissuaded from their march to Delhi for an anti-farm law protest. The group has been talking to the police through the evening from across a trench and a barricade, requesting passage.

Since evening, the group of around 200 men had been standing in the middle of the road shouting slogans. Behind the barricades a small police team waited, accompanied by water cannons and the necessary arsenal for riot control. Around 9 in the evening, the tension in the tiny lit up area, surrounded by a sea of dark, showed the farmers were in no mood to pack up for the night.
