NBA office ransacked

VADODARA: Six unidentified men ransacked the Narmada Bachao Andolan office here and manhandled a NBA activist in the wee hours of Thursday. They threatened NBA activists to 'leave Gujarat, or else face death'.

Two men reportedly barged into the NBA office at Shivam Park, Ellora Park at 2 am on Thursday. NBA activist Raghuvirsinh Ratansinh Raghvanshi, who was at the office responded to the call bell and opened the door. The men held an revolver and a knife and stormed into the office. They pinned Raghu to the ground after beating him up. Meanwhile, the four other barged into the office and ransacked it. They tore down documents and burnt them. A computer was also damaged. Raghu received minor knife wounds as the men escaped with Rs 20,000 kept in the office locker.

The men were aged between 30 and 32 and repeatedly asked the NBA to leave Gujarat. Raghu lodged a police complaint at the Gorwa police station at 7 am.

"NBA has been receiving anonymous threats since October this year. A complaint was lodged with the police commissioner of Vadodara on October 16 by the NBA. Despite this, NBA was receiving threatening calls ultimately resulting in the attack on Thursday", said the NBA criticising the attack.
