Medha Patkar released

By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, AUG. 12. The Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader, Ms. Medha Patkar, and 61 others, including 19 women, were released today at Akrani tehsil of Nandurbar district in Maharashtra. They have reportedly returned to Domkhedi village in the Sardar Sarovar dam submergence zone in the Narmada Valley to continue their protest against lack of rehabilitation and resettlement of project-affected people.

Sources said tension prevails at the ``satyagraha'' village of Domkhedi as the police has declared the area in and around Domkhedi as prohibited under Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code. Author, Ms. Arundhati Roy, has also reached the village to express her solidarity from outside to those facing submergence.
