Punjabi actor Deep Sidhu has been arrested by the special cell of the Delhi police on Tuesday on charges of instigating violence during the tractor rally on Republic Day.
Several teams of the Delhi police's crime branch have been searching for Sidhu after several farmers accused him of playing a role in the violence at the Red Fort on January 26.
A day after the violence on January 26, Sidhu had uploaded a Facebook video saying the incident should not be given any communal colour nor the protesters dubbed as fundamentalists or hardliners.
The Delhi police had also announced a monetary reward for anyone who can provide information on the whereabouts of Sidhu, who has been named as an accused in the violence that unfolded after farmers took out a tractor rally on Republic Day.
