Valpoi: After a day marked with protests, Goa government has finally completed the process of demarcating the land for proposed IIT at Shel-Melaulim.

On Tuesday, huge force of policemen descended at Shel-Melaulim village only to be stopped by 200-odd crowd of locals, mostly women, who reiterated that they will not be parting away their land for the project.

A senior police officer said that the teams were brought in at Sattari to avoid the villagers from stopping the State Land Survey Department officers to demarcate the land for IIT project.

The villagers continued their protest during the day stopping the team from demarcation. “The situation turned tensed when villagers realized that they were kept busy at the protest site and some of the survey officers had already completed their work by entering through the forest road,” said one of the protestor.

The angry mob of villagers tried to stop the officers, who had completed their process of demarcation.

Eye witnesses revealed that there was minor clashes between the villagers and police force in the afternoon when the land survey officers had already left the scene.

“The demarcation was done without out consent. We don’t recognize such process,” said Nikita Naik, one of the protestor, talking to mediapersons. She said that the villagers had been protesting peacefully till now, but the time has come that we need to be more aggressive, to save our land.
