The Jat agitation turned ugly today in Fatehabad district, as a group of Jat protestors clashed with Haryana police. The clash resulted in the injury of many police personnel including a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP). Reports said that some women and journalists were also injured in the clash. The Jat protestors also set two buses on fire. The police had to resort to tear gas shells and lathicharge to disperse the agitating crowd. Some of the protestors were also injured in the clash. The clash took place, as the police tried to stop a convoy of tractor trolleys that were carrying protestors to Delhi.

Meanwhile, the mega Jat protest that was to start in Delhi has been postponed for 15 days, after Jat leaders met and discussed their issues with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. The Jats had planned to move their bullocks and cattle from bordering States and lay a siege to the Parliament House Complex in Delhi. CM Khattar said that the quota demand of the Jats will be looked into at the Central level. He also said that the cases filed against Jat protestors will be reviewed to find any excesses done on part of police personnel.
