“We had gone to another village to attend a social function. When we got the news (about land acquisition), we rushed back only to find that our paddy stored in the yarn has been damaged, our brinjal cultivation has been destroyed by the police. The police also arrested our other family members,” a sobbing Gyana Gadtya told mediapersons here.
“There are no intellectuals in Balangir. Had intellectuals been active, they would have protested the inhuman act of the police,” said family member Kabi Gadtya.
Four persons were arrested on Friday as they obstructed the construction lower the irrigation project at the dam site at Pardhiapali. A case has been registered at the Sadar police station in this connection. A juvenile has been handed over the Child Welfare Committee and a woman has been released on bail while the three others would also be released,” said Balangir SP Ravi Prakash to this correspondent.
