Reliance seeks court help over vandalism amid India farm protests

Farmers' group says Ambani among big winners of corporate agriculture

MUMBAI -- India's leading conglomerate Reliance Industries, run by billionaire Mukesh Ambani, has become the latest target of monthslong protests by farmers against the country's new agriculture laws, which they fear may leave them at the mercy of large companies that might be looking to enter the agribusiness sector.

The petrochemical-to-digital group on Monday approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court, pleading government intervention in stopping "miscreants" from damaging its telecom towers in the northern states after vandals allegedly damaged more than 1,500 of 9,000 telecom towers in the region of Reliance Jio Infocomm, the group's telecoms arm.
