This photo is 6 years old, not from the current ongoing farmers’ protest.
All the police officers in the image can been not wearing masks, hence, the image appeared to be skeptical. Reverse Image search done to find out the credibility of the image led us to a 2015 article by Tribune India and Hindustan Times, about the brawl between farmers and police officials over panchayat land in Patiala.
Below image is of an article published by the Hindustan Times. The date can also be seen and it is Aug 07, 2015.
There has been a recent clash as well between farmers and police officials near Chandigarh-Mohali border 4 days ago. Farmers tried to break the barricades in order to move ahead towards Raj Bhavan. But the police used water cannons against the angry mob. Link to the entire article is down below.
This is the recent image of police using water cannons to control the angry farmers.
