Ten youth Congress workers were severely injured in a clash between supporters of Rajiv Gandhi IT Park and Taleigao villagers near Panaji on Tuesday.

The incident occurred when Goa Pradesh Youth Congress workers organised a rally in support of the IT habitat at Taleigao village on the city outskirts.

The villagers led by legislator Anatasio Monserratte are opposing the IT Park alleging it to be a "real estate scam".

The villagers who roughed up ten youth Congress workers in the presence of a strong police force attacked the rally.

The situation remained tense in the village with police deploying additional force.
