ASK concerned over police attack on oil-gas body men

Edit Date:7/9/2011 12:00:00 AM

Rights organisation Ain O Salish Kendra on Tuesday expressed grave concern over the police atrocities on the leaders and activists of the national committee for protection of oil, gas, mineral resources, power and ports.

The organisation in a press release said the committee called a half-day general strike for July 3 demanding cancellation of the deals signed with the ConocoPhillips for the exploration and extraction of gas in two offshore gas fields.

According to the media report, the police injured the leaders and activists of the committee and arrested many students, the release said.

The organisation said it was unacceptable that anybody would vandalise vehicles and it was likewise unacceptable that the police would attack a peaceful demonstration.

Ain O Salish Kendra said the committee was carrying out its movement to save the country’s resources. 

It hoped that in future the government would take necessary step to change the behaviour of the police forces during any strike.
