The protests are being observed on the call of farmers’ umbrella body, Samyukt Kisan Morcha.

In a statement, it said the protests will only be intensified until justice is secured in the Lakhimpur Kheri case.

Four of the eight people who died in the violence on October 3 were farmers, who were knocked down by a vehicle carrying BJP workers.
