Protest against CISF camp:10 hurt in jawan attack

Ranchi, Jan. 13: At least 10 people sustained injuries when Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) jawans lathicharged a mob protesting against a proposal to set up a CISF camp at Kute village in Jagannathpur today.

The incident took place around 8.30am when the villagers assembled after having information of uprooting a Sarna flag they had put on the proposed site to restrain CISF officials from starting the work.

The injured were admitted to HEC Plant Hospital with injuries on heads and legs. But they were reported out of danger. Darshan Mahto, Santosh Mahto, Nepal Baitha and Jeetwa Oroan, who led the mob, were identified among the injured persons.

Superintendent of police (rural) Mohit Bundas confirmed the incident but refused to divulge details saying that the matter was not serious. “The matter is simple. Everything was set right immediately,” he said.

Sources, however, said CISF jawans remained in action for an hour and a half. “The jawans did not spare anyone and assaulted all those who came in their way. Even those having nothing to do with the agitation were beaten up,” a resident said, adding that they were aggressive as the visit of one of their senior officers was scheduled today.

Sub-divisional officer Rajdeep John, who was deputed to deal with the situation, said the trouble was nothing new. “The trouble started eight months back when 158 acres of land spared by the Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC) from its 3,500 acres of unused land was transferred to CISF for setting up a camp and CISF officials took the land in their possession to start construction,” he said.

Tribal leader Dayamani Barla, who led the villagers, said that it was wrong on HEC’s part to sell the land acquired by the state government for industrial purpose. “Unused land should be returned to its owners instead of selling it to CISF,” she said.

Barla said the villagers were staging dharna at the proposed camp site since June 6. Last month, they also rooted a Sarna flag to restrain CISF from any construction. “When the CISF jawans today uprooted the flag, the villagers assembled and started agitation prompting CISF jawans to lathicharge,” she said.
