Ghaziabad: The Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) on Sunday demanded a probe by a sitting Supreme Court judge into clashes that broke out between security personnel and agitating farmers in Uttar Pradesh over land acquisition row.

"The Uttar Pradesh government has been acquiring the farmers' land without their consent and without fixing the rate of land,” RLD state chief Baba Hardev Singh said.

"There should be a probe by a sitting Supreme Court judge into the clashes," he said.

The clashes had erupted yesterday in Gautam Buddha Nagar district when security personnel tried to rescue three roadways employees held hostage by agitating farmers demanding better compensation for their acquired land.
