Koraput: Koraput district administration today clamped Section 144 of CrPc at Ambogaon under Damanjodi police station after tension erupted in the area following protest of locals to the construction of a boundary wall by National Aluminium Company (NALCO).
Four platoons of police personnel have been deployed to avoid any untoward incident.
The locals, who have lost their land due to NALCO’s project, have been protesting the construction demanding employment in the company first.
Three Magistrates, including tehsildars of Koraput and Laxmipur, Sub-Collector Krutibas Rout, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) V.R. Rao, Koraput SDPO Balabhadra Deep and IICs of Damanjodi, Sunabeda and Semiliguda police stations are at the spot and closely monitoring the situation.
Sub-Collector requested the locals not to protest as the NALCO is constructing the boundary on land registered in its name.
