Hundreds from other Sattari villages back Melauli locals, serve ultimatum

The protests against the proposed IIT project at Melauli in Sattari soared on Monday, as hundreds of villagers from neighbouring Mauxi, Dhabe and Khotodem entered Melauli’s forests to join the agitation. Residents from Mauxi marched almost 20km towards Melauli, shouting slogans, even as police attempts to stop the protesters failed.
