A team of six forensic scientists from Gujarat on Sunday, 31 January, examined areas in and around the ITO junction in central Delhi - one of several spots in the national capital that witnessed violence during the farmers' tractor rally on Republic Day.

Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal, whose party pulled out of ruling NDA over the contentious farm laws, on Sunday visited the Ghazipur area near the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border to lend his support to the ongoing farmers' agitation.

Internet services have been suspended in Delhi's border areas, including Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri, from 11 pm on 29 January to 11 pm on 31 January to ‘maintain public safety and avert public emergency’, an order by the Union Home Ministry said.
