"Karamsingh Rathia, an Adivasi from Katangdi village, told Amnesty International India: "The company people came to me and asked to sell my land. And if they did not sell their land, the company would occupy it and dump iron, ash and coal over it, and villagers would get nothing. I refused to sell, but a middleman said that since my land was in the middle of the proposed company site, I had to sell it. If the content is found to be eligible for an FIR, police would register one in this case too. Given the scale of the alleged abuses, the police must also investigate whether these allegations provide evidence of a pattern of wrongful dispossession of land."
