Villagers fear for their lives after police videoed their protest in Valachchena to demand the return of their land, radiogagana.com reports.

Media footage show police use their mobile phones to record the protestors in front of Koralepattu divisional secretariat.

Poonani, Savukkali, Thalavai, Ariyampathi and Unnichai staged the agitation against the forced acquisition and occupation of their land, including Shakthi Maha Vidyalaya at Moravodai.
