135 agitators held for attempting self-immolation

Around 135 agitators of the Rashtriya Janhitavadi Yuwa Samiti and Aheri Zilla Nirman Kriti Samiti were detained by the police on Monday, for attempting self-immolation and trying to hang themselves in protest against the administration’s indifference to their demands.

They were released later, after a case under Section 68 of the Bombay Police Act was registered against them, police said. Since December 4, the 2  organisations had launched an indefinite hunger strike at the collectorate and Indira Square, demanding immediate issuance of forest land holdings, besides other demands. They had also staged a road blockade agitation to get the attention of the administration during their hunger strike on December 5 .
