Forest officials cheating adivasis and forcing them to work

Hem Singh Markam an adivasi from Kabirdham district says a forest ranger came to our village and told us that if we went with him to forest to do some work he will give us deeds for land. 30 of us went with him but he now refuses to fulfil his promise. Not only that he has filed a police case against us. The number of the ranger is 9424112377. It seems the forest officials are now planning to throw us out of our land. Please help. For more Markam Ji can be reached at 09893062106
