The incident took place in the morning at a public school campus at Braj Vihar in Link Road police station area, where the 95th Battalion of BSF was stationed to assist the local police in handling law and order problem arising out of a farmers' rally, the officer said.

The battalion had arrived here from Guru Gram to help police maintain law and order in Ghaziabad during the transit of Kisan Kranti Padyatra through the city, he said.

On a march from Haridwar since September 23, under the banner of Bharatiya Kisan Union, the farmers are slated to reach Delhi on October 2 to highlight their demands of lower power tariff and loan waiver, amongst others.

The rally had reached Meerut Sunday.

The FIR was lodged by Company Commander Ripu Daman singh, the SSP said.
