Ranchi, December 2, 2016: Tribal students were on Friday confined to their hostels in Jharkhand to prevent them from taking part in the shutdown called by tribal organisations to protest the amendments to the two state land acts.

The security personnel have been asked to keep the students inside the hostels.

“We have been directed not to allow the tribal students to come out of the hostels in groups. Forces will be used if they try to come outside. We are prepared for any eventualities,” a police official at Ranchi College hostel told IANS.

“Heavy security was deployed outside our hostel before we woke up. We are not allowed to take part in the shutdown. What kind of democratic system are we living in,” asked Prem Munda, a tribal student.

The Jharkhand Adivasi Morcha and other tribal organisations called for the shutdown to protest the move.
