A unnamed Adivasi from Madaiya Gond village in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh says a tank was built in the village in 1980s but some influential person has captured the pond and does not allow any adivasi to go near the tank. He has put two big machines and takes all water away to his field. He also does fishing there. If adivasis try to go near the pond he threatens them by firing at them.
