Hasan Suroor, The Hindu / LONDON, July 28, 2011.

Shareholders of Vedanta Resources, a FTSE 100 company that has been embroiled in a row over its activities in India, were on Tuesday booed by protesters gathered outside the venue of its Annual General Meeting in Westminster.
They called for its expulsion from India and an investigation into its trade practices and human rights record.
Carrying banners with slogans such as “Vedanta, Give it Up” and “Indian Government-No U-turn on Niyamgiri,” the protesters said the company must abandon its “notorious” mine in the Niyamgiri Hills, in Orissa, home of the Dongria Kondh tribe, which has been campaigning against it.
