3 women protestors from Punjab die after truck accidentally crushes them near Tikri protest site

The havoc and mayhem unleashed by the lawless ‘farmers’ protest at Delhi’s borders continue to have tragic consequences.

Three women protesting at the Tikri border site, hailing from Punjab’s Mansa district, died today morning after they came under a truck, near Bahadurgarh, Haryana.

The truck ran over a divider on which the three women had been sitting, reportedly waiting for an auto-rickshaw. Two of them were killed on the spot while the third succumbed in the hospital. Another two women were injured, one of whom is admitted to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak, with serious injuries.

Those who died are Amarjeet Kaur, Gurmel Kaur and Sukhwinder Kaur. Those injured were identified as another Gurmel Kaur and Harmeet Kaur. They all hailed from Village Khiva Dialu Wala in Mansa district.

The accident took place around 6 am on Thursday morning. The driver fled from the scene but has now been arrested. Satwant Singh, a member of Bharatiya Kisan Union, Ugrahan, told The Indian Express that it is suspected that the driver of the truck fell asleep at the wheel, causing the accident.

On October 15, a poor SC Sikh laborer Lakhbir Singh was mercilessly hacked and strung up to die a horrible death by Nihang Sikhs. It is alleged Lakhbir had merely touched a Sikh religious scripture, an act deemed as ‘desecration’ and for which he was lynched as people watched. The poor man had come to the protest site only a few days back. His grieving family was not even allowed a proper cremation and no Sikh priest was allowed to attend the last rites. His murderers were lauded as heroes in Gurudwaras.

On October 3, protestors waving black flags allegedly pelted stones and lashed lathis as a convoy of BJP workers was driving to receive the chief guest for an annual local event in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri district. As a result, the lead vehicle lost control and crashed into protestors walking on the road, leaving 4 Sikh farmers and a local journalist dead. The crowd then went berserk and brutally beat and hacked the driver and 2 BJP workers to death, while trying to make them admit that ‘they had been sent by the local BJP MP to attack them’.

In June, farmer Mukesh Kumar from a village near the Tikri protest site was burnt alive allegedly to send a message to Brahmins to take part in the protest or face similar consequences.

In April, a woman protestor from Bengal was gang-raped at the Tikri site by AAP leaders and other members of the Kisan social army. After a few days, she contracted Covid-19 and died in a Jhajjar hospital. Protest leader Yogendra Yadav was aware of the wrong-doings but failed to intimate police on time and get the girl timely treatment.

The needless protests on public roads & spaces have hurt not just Delhi and surrounding areas, but Punjab and Haryana as well. In January, two women were killed and three injured after a tractor carrying a water tanker ran over them in Amritsar as a group of women were going to join the sit-in protest.

The January 26 violence in Delhi during Republic Day in guise of a ‘tractor rally’, and vandalism at Red Fort has been well documented. The protests in Punjab and Delhi have also been proven to be super-spreaders of the Covid-19 virus, and one of the main causes of the deadly second wave in North Bharat.

Over Rs. 1 lakh crore worth economic losses have been caused by these disruptive protests, despite the matter being in courts. On October 1, while hearing a petition in which protestors demanded they be allowed to protest inside Delhi, the Supreme Court stated:

“On the one hand you have been strangulating the entire city and blocked highways… now you want to enter the city and protest here?…Are you then protesting against judiciary? Once you have approached the court, you let the law take its own course… But instead you continue with the protests and block the national highways… Have you taken permission of the citizens living nearby (the protest sites)? There is a right to protest, but there is a right to use public roads and free movement… You are even obstructing defence personnel movements. You block trains and then you say you have been protesting peacefully. There is no point in continuing to protest once you have come to the court.”
