BONGAIGAON, March 6 - At least 45 picketers, including 15 women, were injured when police resorted to lathi-charge, burst tear gas shells and fired rubber bullets to disperse the agitators who were staging a blockade on the national highway at Sidli in Chirang district today.

The United Organisation Co-ordination Committee, a joint forum of four non-tribal student groups (All Koch Rajbongshi Students Union, All Assam Gorkha Students Union, All Santhal Students Union and All Nath Jogi Students Union) had called a 24-hour BTAD shutdown protesting the BTC�s new land policy which goes against the land rights of non-tribal communities residing in BTAD.

Chirang SP Yuvraj told the media that to remove the blockade, police had to apply �mild force� on the picketers after they started �pelting stones on the vehicles�.

Police detained four picketers in Chirang district during the strike.
