Forest Rights: No police action against illegal act of forest offcials, pls help...

My name is Jang Sai Koya. I am calling from Rajpur block in Chhattisgarh. We are very pained with the attitude of forest officials towards adivasis. Though Forest Act says if an adivasi has applied for forest land no action should be taken till the application is decided. But forest officials misbehaved with Mr ramchander who is living on forest land from 1991. A case has been registered but no action has been taken against the officials. You are requested to help. For more Koya Ji can be reached at 09753713232
