    Background: A NEW DELHI MAGISTRATE LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY) SENTENCED TO TEN DAYS IMPRISONMENT 165 OF 200 PEOPLE ARRESTED EARLIER IN THE DAY DURING DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE HANDING OVER OF PART OF THE RANN OF KUTCH TO PAKISTAN ACCORDING TO THE INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL'S AWARD.

    MOST OF THOSE INVOLVED IN THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE MEMBERS OF THE RIGHT WING HINDU JAN SANGH, BUT A FURTHER 50 BELONGED TO THE SAMUKTA SOCIALIST PARTY - WEARING THEIR RED PARTY CAPS. THEIR APPARENT TARGET WAS INDIA'S PARLIAMENT HOUSE, AND THEY CLASHED WITH POLICE SEVERAL TIMES IN TRYING TO REACH THE BUILDINGS. SEVERAL VIOLENT SCUFFLES OCCURRED AS THE DEMONSTRATORS CAME FACE TO FACE WITH STEEL-HELMETED RIOT POLICE.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS THE FIRST TO BE HELD IN DELHI FOLLOWING A DECISION TO MOVE AGAINST TO THE CAPITAL FROM THE RANN OF KUTCH ITSELF - PARTLY BECAUSE IN THE KUTCH AT PRESENT IT'S FAR TOO HOT TO DEMONSTRATE. IN THE PAST THREE WEEKS, POLICE HAVE ARRESTED OVER 3,600 PEOPLE TRYING TO ENTER THE RANN OF KUTCH, AND THE DELHI DEMONSTRATIONS ARE PLANNED TO OCCUR DAILY UNTIL 13 MAY. A FURTHER 70 DEMONSTRATORS WERE ARRESTED TODAY (THURSDAY).
