Five policemen including, Superintendent of Police of Mathura, were injured on Thursday as violence erupted during an operation to clear hundreds of acres of government land from the activists of a religious group ‘Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi’.

Police used teargas to deal with the violent satyagrahis in the Jawahar Bagh area where the clashes continued in this district of Uttar Pradesh. The injured policemen included SP (City) of Mathura and SHO of the local police station, police sources said.

Unconfirmed reports said the SHO had died in the clash but there was no confirmation regarding this. Over two years ago, the activists of splinter group of Baba Jai Gurudeo, claiming themselves to be member of ‘Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi’, had occupied hundreds of acres of land of Jawahar Bagh on the pretext of ‘Dharna’.

Their demands included like cancellation of election of President and Prime Minister of India, replacement of existing currency with ‘Azad Hind Fauj’ currency, sale of diesel at the rate of 60 litres for one Rupee and petrol at the rate of 40 litres for one Rupee. The Allahabad High Court, acting on a PIL, had recently ordered the authorities to get the land vacated.
