Dalit eyes taken out: Caste-virus 001MH2008

12Jan08

A love affair in a Marathwada village took a gruesome turn when outraged relatives of an upper-caste girl gouged out one of the eyes of a Dalit boy who had eloped with her. The relatives then tried to inflict the same punishment on one of the friends of the boy, but he managed to escape with injuries.

The incident took place at Sategaon village in Nanded district on January 6 but came to light two days later after the police, who got word of the crime, contacted the two boys. Five of the Maratha girl’s relatives have been arrested and remanded to police custody until January 14.
