Forest dept burnt our huts, threatening to burn us alive if we continue farming...

My name is Maniram. I am calling from village Tilhoura in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh. We live in forest range Majhgawan. Forest department people have burnt our huts last week where some of us even have revenue land deeds. They also destroyed our crops.They are creating terror here. They are threatening us that if we continue to do farming here they will burn ourselves alive as well. For more Maniram Ji can be reached at 09752216971
