Punjab: Assistant Sub Inspector dies during farmers' protest in Tarn Taran

Chandigarh: An Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) has died in a farmers' protest in Tarn Taran in Punjab on Wednesday morning.

The ASI was trying to get away from the mob of farmers who had stopped his vehicle while the police was trying to clear off the protesters agitating against fuel price hike in Jiobala village.

While the protestors claim that the police official died of a heart attack while running away from the protestors, there are also allegations that the protestors beat up the ASI.
