Villagers complained that in the area, this company operation had lead to water scarcity. In the earlier days, they had to dig only for 10 feet for water, but now they have to go 100 feet below the ground.This lead to water scarcity.

People in the Village get panic after word of smoke spreads around from pipes.

Villagers didn’t allow the collector and village administrative office when they tried to visit the site. For this incident and also for water scarcity saying the land was becoming not suitable for cultivation anymore, authorities claim the protestors ganged up against them and blamed the ONGC for the leak.

Police forced to lathi charge when a situation went out of control after few miscreants began to pelt stones at the cops, and started lighting up the haystacks.

Many women and aged peoples were injured, and the protesters have chased away from the site. Police reports told that the miscreats were motivated by some local leaders in the village.
