 Medha Patkar freed, vows to go Singur again

Kolkata, Jan 11 (IANS) Social activist Medha Patkar was released on bail Thursday following her arrest a day earlier for attempting to visit Singur in West Bengal. She immediately vowed to go the troubled village again.

'I have been released on unconditional bail,' Medha told reporters outside the Alipore court here where she was produced. Four others arrested with Medha were also released.

'I will go to Singur again,' she said after her release. 'We are moving the court and human rights commission against the state government to seek justice for our associates who are illegally detained.'

She demanded the withdrawal from Singur of orders prohibiting the gathering or four or more people at the village that has witnessed mass protests against the take over of farmland for a car project.
