Trouble in Dewas
the Madhya Pradesh government would like to forget it. The residents of Dewas district, however, will remember it for the rest of their lives. Four people were killed in a confrontation between the administration and the tribal people at Mehendikheda village, about 100 km from the district headquarters of Dewas, when police opened fire on a group of protesters on April 2, 2001. Several others, including one police personnel, were also injured.
The district administration says the shootout was in self defence
