DDA employees protest assault on co- workers.

AS MANY as 500 engineers of the Delhi Development Authority ( DDA) -- ( Dwarka Zone) have gone on a strike to protest against the authority's lethargy in dealing with Monday's incident when one of their colleagues was assaulted.

A total of 1,800 engineers and 3,000 to 4,000 more DDA employees are expected to join the strike by early next week.

The All DDA Engineers Association have given a set of demands, failing which they have threatened to bring work to a standstill. Firstly, they want the DDA to bare with the entire hospital expenses for the treatment of the two victims. They also want a sum of ` 50 lakh as compensation for their colleagues.

" We were asked to call off the strike but we have informed the officials that until a strong FIR is filed we are not going to get back to work, Param Yadav, All DDA Engineers Association secretary said.
