As per the visuals, JCB machines were seen removing blockades placed by the Delhi Police at the farmers' protest at Delhi's Tikri border amid a Supreme Court hearing that has highlighted how traffic in the area had been stopped by the authorities and not by the demonstrators.

The police had placed elaborate barricades on the roads, along with giant nails and huge concrete blocks, when farmers converged on various border crossing points around the capital in November last year to protest against Centre's three agricultural laws.

On October 21, the Supreme Court said farmers had the right to protest, but roads could not be blocked indefinitely. This came while hearing a plea against the blockade of roads between Delhi to Noida due to farmers' protests against the three agriculture laws.

A Bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul asked farmers' unions to file their response in two weeks on the petition seeking removal of protesting farmers from roads and posted the matter for hearing on December 7.
