New Delhi, June 7 (IBNS): Opposing the alleged police firing on farmer in Madhya Pradesh, the Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday condemned the incident.

The AAP said its five-member party delegation will visit Mandsaur and meet the farmers.

The delegation will visit Mandsaur on June 9.

"The Aam Aadmi Party condemns the act," AAP leader Gopal Rai told media.

The  farmers’ protest in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur intensified on Wednesday, a day after five people were killed in  firing, as agitators set on fire about ten vehicles, prompting authorities to clamp curfew in the district, reports said.

Mobile internet services were  suspended in Mandasaur, Rattam and Neemuch districts since morning to check spread of rumours.

The protesting farmers also got into a scuffle with the District Collector and the Superintendent of police while demanding presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi is likely to visit the area to take stock of the situation.

On Tuesday, Gandhi had tweeted that the state Government is "at war" with the farmers.

Meanwhile, Mandsaur collector S K Singh confirmed death of five persons in Tuesday's firing  and said a magisterial inquiry has been ordered. A protest rally by farmers turned violent on Tuesday when shots were fired, leaving four people killed, in  Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh, media reports said.

Tuesday's incident took place when shots were fired during a farmers' agitation that turned violent.

State Home Minister Bhupendra Singh denied police having opened fire on the crowd at  Mandsaur.

The Chief Minister  has ordered a judicial probe into the incident.

He also  announced compensation of Rs 10 lakh to the kin of the deceased and assistance of Rs 1 lakh to the injured.
