Jaitapur rage triggers violence, curfew in Ratnagiri
20 04 2011
Police caned protesters and imposed an indefinite curfew in Ratnagiri town in the Konkan region of Maharashtra as tension mounted Tuesday, a day after a local fisherman who was part of a mob rioting against the nuclear power project in Jaitapur, was shot dead by police.
Tabrez Tehekar of Nate village was killed in the firing Monday afternoon. Police have said they had no option but to fire at the mob, which was trying to burn down the Nate police station, and could have looted weapons and ammunition.
Fresh trouble started in Ratnagiri, the district headquarters about 450 km south of Mumbai, this morning. The Shiv Sena, which has been opposing the project, had called for a district bandh to protest Tehekar’s killing, and villagers from the project area villages of Madban, Nate and Jaitapur had gathered near the district civil hospital in Ratnagiri where the autopsy was to be conducted.

RATNAGIRI: Curfew has been imposed in the city following violent protests and stone throwing outside the Ratnagiri civil hospital during a bandh called by the Shiv Sena on Tuesday.
The death of Tabrez Sayekar of Nate in Monday’s police firing during protests against the Jaitapur nuclear power project, and the post mortem examination were the focus of the villagers’ protest on Tuesday.
Crowds from Nate gathered at the hospital from Monday night after Sayekar’s body was brought there. Family members refused to allow post mortem and set conditions which included punishment for the policeman who opened fire on Sayekar.
Ironically, Sayekar is a fisherman who will not lose any land because of the project. However, fisherfolks have been expressing serious concern at the impact of the project on their profession. Read more…

Un projet de centrale nucléaire a été annoncé par le gouvernement indien et la société Areva le 3 décembre 2010. Les 6 réacteurs nucléaires EPR seraient construits dans une zone hautement sismique – classée 4 sur une échelle de 51. La population locale est fortement opposée au projet : en novembre 2010, plus de 3 000 Indiens se sont fait volontairement arrêter par la police, lors d’une manifestation2.
