Colamb protestors to spend a day at Quepem Police station today

Seven Colamb protestors who were released on bail last night are to spend day at Quepem Police station today. This was the condition on which they were granted bail last night. The seven villagers includes Motesh Antao, Egyps D'Souza, Dument D'Souza, Shanto Velip, Rama Velip, Telu Dias and Xavier Fernandes. They will have to be at the Police station from 9.30 am to 12.00 noon and from 2.30 pm to 5.00 pm

It is interesting to note that in spite of police complaint against Fomento mining company for destryoing their agiculture neither official nor managing director of Fometos have ever been arrested. This is clear indication as to on whose side State machinery in Goa is operating at present. State machinery inluding the police has become the extended arm of the mining companies in Goa.
