On February 21, at the Punjab-Haryana Khanauri border, Shubhkaran and his companions were heading towards Delhi when Haryana police intercepted them. The police resorted to using tear gas and firing bullets. Despite the farmers halting their movement, the police continued their actions. According to one of Shubhkaran’s companions, he was just five steps away when a bullet hit Shubhkaran at the back of his head. Severely injured, Shubhkaran was rushed to the hospital, where doctors later declared him dead.
