About 60 farmers were detained and 10 were injured after the police fired tear gas shells to control the crowd in Bhavnagar's Padva on Sunday.
The farmers were protesting against Gujarat Power Corporation Limited for taking away their land.
According to reports, The Gujarat Power Corporation Limited had acquired over 3,000 acres of land from about 1,200 farmers across 12 villages under the Ghogha taluka in Bhavnagar around 20 years ago, to set up its proposed lignite plant. However, the company had not moved to build the plant in the area. The land had remained in the possession of the farmers who were cultivating it and recently took to opposing the company's bid to take possession of the land.
