Caste Attacks: Dalits forced to flee

27Jun10

Khetia is a town and a Nagar-Panchayat in Barwani district in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. From Maharashtra State, it can be reached well by road from Shahada, Nandurbar and Dhule. Here on 25th June 2010, the Uppercaste mob has terrorised Mahar, Mang and Valmiki communities for an individual act of Mahar Boy named Balu Nikum. Thakre had an affair with an upper caste (Gosavi) girl  who retaliated back when objected over his affair. The result was fight in which he prevailed upon the attackers and injured a person from uppercaste. Thakre involved in the affair and fight without active support and cognizance of the community . This has laid to  entire upper caste unity in punishing entire Dalits .

Due to this apprehension, all Dalit families have run away from the Village. Police has not yet acted against the mob psychology for a fear from Caste panchayat. Suresh Kashinath Thakre went on to Police for community protection for he was arrested and bitten in red and blues by Police  this is reported by Khetia Atrocitynews correspondent.

Khetia has population of 14,265. Males constitute 52% of the population and females 48%. Khetia has an average literacy rate of 66%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 75%, and female literacy is 58%. In Khetia, 15% of the population is under 6 years of age.

However Police has been treating the matter with no seriousness. The treatment to the matter is so important for the social democracy in India.  Rural India is sizzling on the pyre of caste agony. Thanks to Police and Administration!!

We will keep updating you on this.

Meanwhile the nodal offifer for Caste Atrocities is DG, MP Mr  S. K. Rout can be reached  at 0755-2443502.
