BARDIYA, May 23rd, 2010: Maoist-affiliated All Nepal Freed Kamaiyas
Association (ANFKA) on Sunday seized an additional 154 bighas of land in
Rajapur area of the district. The area was once known as the hotbed of
Maoist insurgency.

The Maoists, who started land grab drive a week ago, have already seized
87 bighas of land in Daulatpur village.

Police records showed that the seized land include five bighas and 17
katthas land owned by Rudra Bahadur Shahi, 12 bighas owned by Prem
Kumari Rana and 70 bighas of land belonging to Ramesh Gyawali. The land
owners have vented anger against the police for not taking steps to free
the land.

Meanwhile, ANFKA Chairman Challu Tharu said they will continue their
land grab drive till until the government provides land to landless
squatters.
