The police fired teargas canisters to break up a protest by women on Wednesday against a government plan to acquire land for building a Reserve Bank of India complex at Mantri Pukhri here. The women, who had been protesting since Monday, torched a police jeep. They reason that if land is acquired, 500 houses will have to be demolished. A spokeswoman of the protesters said some women, including a minor, were arrested on Monday, and if they were not released, there would be more protests. — Iboyaima Laithangbam
