KHAIRLANJI, India — Not long ago, the Bhotmange family was a showcase of how Dalits, the former “untouchables” at the bottom of India’s caste ladder, are improving their lot amid the nation’s economic boom.
Forgoing his ancestral occupation of handling rotting cow carcasses, Bhaiyalal Bhotmange set up a tiny wheat and rice farm in this village. The income enabled him to buy a cellphone and educate his three children. His 17-year-old daughter learned English, a rarity here. A son studied computers and enrolled at a local college. “I knew that only through education can we uplift our status,” Mr. Bhotmange says. “This was my dream.”

Last year, the dream ended. A mob of higher-caste neighbors, angered by the family’s refusal to accept their destiny as the lowliest of the low, attacked their home. Mr. Bhotmange’s wife and children were dragged out and murdered, their bodies dumped in a canal. Mr. Bhotmange, who had managed to flee, is now a refugee in a nearby city, afraid to venture into Khairlanji.
