Today at around Rajendra Velip, a tribal villager currently involved in defense of his village Caregal, Khola was called to Canacona Police station at 11 am. He was sought to be arrested under various false criminal charges of beating up government surveyor while illegally undertaking survey of his village land.
Police Inspector Raut Dessai tried his level to force arrest but it was foiled by the villagers. Finally police relented and let Rajendra Velip return home at around 2.30 pm without effecting any arrests.
It is understood that top politicians and land mafia are involved in a plot to capture tribal lands in Khola and parcel it then to mega financial interests. Police harassment like this one today at Canacona Police Station are meant to break the morale of struggling people of Goa. State of Goa is directly administrating the same.
