Activists arrested for opposing "illegal" Jindal public hearing

Social activist Ramesh Agrawal from Raigarh in Chhattisgarh sent this report at 5.48 am on 28th May 2011 before getting arrested. Later we came to know that though police did reach the house of other activist Rajesh Tripathi but he managed to give a slip to police but we are releasing the message from Ramesh Agrawal unedited where he says Rajesh Tripathi was also arrested. They are arrested on a case by Jindal from 8 May 2010 where these activists protested against irregularity in public hearing in Tamnar ( IPC 500 to 505). SP Raigarh Rahul Sharma can be contacted at 09425507181 . Some details of the case can be found here
