Farmer leaders in India have condemned the deadly violence during a massive protest against agricultural reforms in the Capital, Delhi.

Thousands of farmers clashed with police as protesters on the outskirt of the City forced their way which led to the death of a protester and 80 police officers injured.

The violence marred Republic Day Celebrations, a national holiday marking the anniversary of India officially adopting its constitution 26 January 1950.

The Government says the agricultural reforms will liberalize the sector but farmers say they will be poorer.

Meanwhile, the Unions behind the demonstrations said they were determined to continue with their protest.
