GOA: Chaos prevailed at Mangor Hill after a large posse of cops deployed there evicted councillor and ex-chairperson of the Mormugao Municipal Council (MMC), Saifulla Khan, after he sat on an indefinite hunger strike at Chota Mangor demanding that the area be delisted as a containment zone.
Khan had last week threatened to go on a hunger strike if the administration didn’t fulfil his demands for the welfare of the people by Sunday. Khan and five others were served notices against going on strike and a team of policemen was stationed outside his house.
Khan, however, began his hunger strike prompting a team of authorities to visit the spot and convince him to call off his agitation. When the councillor refused to budge, deputy collector Sachin Dessai ordered that he be taken to the vasco police station. He was then taken to Margao on the instructions of South Goa collector Ajit Roy.
