Twenty eight windmills were forcibly locked by enraged farmers at Chalakewadi in Satara district on Monday. Farmers alleged that their lands were being used by a number of companies for placing windmills without their consent and they were deceived by false documents of the deal without paying them adequate compensation. They had approached the court and the decision had come in their favour but the windmill owners had refused to implement the court orders, the farmers said.—Correspondent
