 A Dalit was thrashed and his head shaved off on the Agra District Court compound on Tuesday. No arrest has yet been made.

Uttar Pradesh Principal Secretary (Home) K. Chandramouli told newspersons on Wednesday that a first information report was lodged against lawyer Ravindra Singh and his associates immediately after the incident. The FIR was lodged at the New Agra police station by Sher Singh, a relative of the Dalit youth Vinod Jatav (22).The Agra police said the incident was the fallout of an altercation between Jatav and the advocate. The lawyer is the brother-in-law of Jatav’s elder brother Tej Singh.

Police sources said the lawyer was annoyed at Jatav refusing to marry a girl he had chosen for him.At 1 p.m. on Tuesday, the police said, the lawyer called the youth to his makeshift chamber and, along with his colleagues, overpowered Jatav.Later, the youth was thrashed and tied to a tree with his shirt. A barber shaved the youth’s head and the assailants spat at him in the face, the police said.

Ordeal for an hour

The youth underwent the ordeal for about an hour, after which he was let off but not before he profusely apologised to Ravindra Singh.Earlier, the two used abusive language against each other over a mobile phone, the police said.
