A 52-year old Dalit man was allegedly beaten to death by the police for throwing coloured powder on an upper caste on Holi in Jharkhand’ Koderma district , the victim’s widow said.

The family of victim Pradeep Choudhary said that the deceased, along with other villagers, had sprinkled abir (coloured powder) on a local chowkidar Rajendra Yadav as a gesture of goodwill on Holi.

However, Yadav took exception to the action and called upon police to teach the group a lesson. “The police started beating up Pradeep till he fell unconscious. They then took him to the police station,” Pradeep’s widow Jashwa Devi said.

Jashwa claimed that she along with her brother rushed to the Satbarwa police station but the officials did not allow them to see Pradeep and instead abused them over their caste.

Jashwa said police eventually dropped Pradeep home the next morning.

“His body bore many bruises. We took him to Koderma Sadar hospital from where he was referred to Ranchi but he succumbed to his injuries ,” Jashwa alleged.

Waiting for justice, Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange, the lone survivor of Khairlanji Massacre, breathed his last in the evening of 20th January, 2017. He was declared dead in Nagpur’s Shrikrishna’s hospital due to major heart attack. Earlier when he came back from his work to his residence at MHADA colony, Bhandara he did not feel well. Immediately, he was taken to Dr Chavan , MD, who diagnosed him with major heart attack and referred him to Nagpur’s Shrikrishna Hospital. After about an hour in ICCU of the hospital, he succumbed to the heart attack and passed away. It is reported by one of his relatives and activists closer to him, that before 4 months he suffered the paralytic attack for which he was treated from a local doctor and got recovered.

Pic01: Bhayyalal Bhotmange father of Priyaka, Sudhir died last week..

Born on 13th March, 1956 to mother, Mrs Sasubai and father Sudama,  Bhaiyyalal was hardly educated upto 4th Standard. His major occupation was farming. When he got married to Surekha, he shifted to Khairlanji to cultivate the ancestral small piece of land which was earlier barren. He and his wife with their hard-work, nourished the land and harvested the good deal of paddy. Though, not educated, he understood the importance of education due to Babasaheb’’s message of educating the children well even at the expense of filing up the belly. His efforts were well responded by his children as daughter Priyanka wanted to become a police officer and son, an engineer. But his dreams remained unfulfilled as caste hatred destroyed their lives on 29th September, 2016.

The massacre completely devastated his life, but the Ambedkarite activists rallied behind. He first stayed in the house of Mr Dilip Ukey in Varathi , the railway station town place of Bhandara. He accommodated himself very well with his family and was also very caring to his children. However, he left Mr Ukey’s house and started staying alone in MHADA house given by government. He used to appear before all the police and CBI enquiries without fear. Whenever there were deputations to the dignitaries like the then Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, he was in complete control of himself. He was also composed in front of media. Many of the activists visited and interviewed him who were well responded by him without any hesitation. Wherever he went he appeared to be a walking symbol of injustice and discrimination, the reality with which the Dalits are still identified with. This reality is pushing them for revolt which Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange symbolized!

Bhaiyyalal’s struggle with justice can be reckoned with great bravery and courage. From trial court in Bhandara to High Court in Nagpur, he would attend all the hearing even though not specifically called by court. He would also attend the public programs organized by Ambedkarites. He along with activists from Nagpur would organize the annual function to commemorate the deaths of his wife and children at Deulagaon, the place of their graveyard. Last time he was seen in the program for awareness on Atrocity Act organized by Dalit activists in the month of November, 2016 in the backdrop of the demand for the repeal of the act by Maratha Kranti Morcha. His mere presence said it all about caste atrocities. He was also present in Mumbai to pay homage to Babasaheb on 6th December,2016 at Chaitya Bhoomi. But ironically, he passed away without seeing the dawn of justice which was delayed and denied!  He rests in peace near graves of his wife and children.

Bhaiyyaal died due to massive heart attack, he was painful in his last days. He is still painful in his grave, for injustice meted out on this and to him and his family. He might be a poor father from Khairlanji but a dared Ambedkarite. He lost his family to caste hatred but he kept all faith in the Indian Judicial system that one day he will get justice.  Indian village pulled his family out of their small hut, beat them mercilessly, paraded them naked , entire village saw it , they were murdered and police didn’t believe it. Soon the courts observed silence and turned negative on caste angle. When the world saw caste here as the basis for crime, without which they would not have dared to touch the family. Indian courts ruled out caste angle. Shocking..!!!! Saying that Police did not provide sufficient evidence..What the hell. Please find the entire court proceedings here. What kind of justice is this?? WHo will have faith these institutions run by caste minds.


Bhaiyalal bid farewell to the world than to face everyday shame. Caste has taken his family, his pride and now his life..Good Job caste India..!! You live at the cost of Human..

In 2012, Gram Panchayat elections were held across the state of Maharashtra. Bankaranja village in Kaij taluka of Beed district had a 9-member Panchayat. In the elections of 2012, the people voted in 8 members belonging to the major front (BJP) and 1 member (Aruna Dahire)from the opposing front (NCP). As the post of Sarpanch in 2012 was reserved for a woman of Scheduled Caste (SC), Aruna Dahire the only elected SC female member of Bankaranja Gram Panchayat, became the Sarpanch against the wishes of the winning group which had no SC woman elected member.

Following Aruna’s election, on 16 January, 2013, Gram Sevak Balaji Rakh passed a proposal for approving the signature of Sarpanch Aruna Dahire for the Gram Panchayat’s transactions. The rest of the members took objection to this and passed a resolutionrejecting the Sarpanch’s signatory rights by majority vote. Aruna Dahire complained against

the same to the BDO (Gatvikas Adhikari), Panchayat Samiti- Kaij, and in panchayat meeting of 16/01/2013 gramsevak mentioned its legally required sarpanch to authorize financial transactions.

On 26 January, 2013, after the Gram Sabha meeting ended, at the Gram Panchayat office, Sudhakar Lamb and 10 others hurled casteist abuses like “हे महारीन तू सरपचं झ्हाल्यानेकाय होते?” (Oh Maharin, so what if you’ve become Sarpanch) at Aruna and her husb and Shrimant Dahire and roughed them up. The police did not register the Dahires’ complaint for 7-8 days. Following which the couple approached local activists Ashok Tangde and Manisha

Tokale of Dalit Adivasi Adhikar Abhiyan (DA3) who reside in Beed. The activists following a dharna and morcha, conducted a meeting with the Collector. On the Collector’s intervention, an FIR was finally registered on 6 February, 2013 against 11 people including gram panchayat members under the Prevention of Atrocities Act.

Following this, a compromise was arrived at a village meeting, where Aruna and her husband were ‘requested’ to take back the FIR on the promise of the cooperation of other Gram Panchayat members to Aruna’s leadership as Sarpanch. On 12 February, 2013, following the compromise, Shrimant Dahire signed a bond taking back his complaint, which was then forwarded to the Police. The police abandoned the investigation on Aruna’s FIR on the basis of the affidavit by Aruna and her husband Shrimant.

Following the compromise, Aruna tried to initiate several development initiatives for the village (2 road construction projects, etc.) However, she was obstructed in one way or the other due to non-cooperation of other Panchayat Samiti members. Until date, the only work she has been able to complete, that too only due to her grit and courage has been a road built in the main village. Development works for the Dalit colony in the village were not even allowed to be spoken of in the Gram Panchayat meetings. Moreover, the Gram Sevak on more than one occasion got her to sign blank cheques. Everytime she protested they would intimidate her and ask her to remain within limits. Each time this occurred, Aruna has submitted written complaints to the BDO apprising him of the situation. The BDO never initiated any action against the accused; however, Aruna continued to register complaints to him.

Finally, seeing the insubordination of Aruna Dahire and assertion of her own power, the major front instigated the resignation of one of its own upper caste female members and got a Scheduled Caste woman, Maya Dahire, re-elected in the vacant place through by-elections. Following her election, the members of the Panchayat Samiti passed a no-confidence motion against Aruna Dahire seeking to elect Maya Dahire in her place, and during the meeting on 22 June, 2016, Aruna and her husband were beaten up by Madhukar Lamb and 9 others.

Fact Finding Report of Dalit Women Sarpanch

The unrest over the brutal assault on Dalits in Gujarat’s Una last week, for allegedly skinning a cow, led to two deaths in Saurashtra on Tuesday. One protester was reported to have committed suicide over the episode, while a head constable was killed in clashes between a mob and police.

The case is not new in PM Narendra Modi’s Gujarat. There is a Gurakshak Samiti which is in operation has links with RSS-BJP. The Samiti is a militia  that violently kills lower caste poor Dalits in India. The traditional caste system has driven Dalits into occupation of selling  cow hide. This is India where upper caste do not want to give them opportunity yet they will kill them when they are enagaged into caste work.

SEVEN MEMBERS of a Dalit family were allegedly beaten up by a group of gau rakshaks for skinning a dead cow in Una town of Gir Somnath district in Gujarat on Monday. Three of the alleged attackers were arrested on Tuesday.

A purported video of the victims being attacked with iron rods and sticks was circulated on social media. In the video, some of the victims are seen tied to a car, while the accused are beating them up.

Police said the incident occurred around 10 am on Monday, when Balu Sarvaiya, a 46-year-old resident of Mota Samadhiyala village in Una taluka, and some of his family members were skinning the carcass. In his complaint, Balu’s son Vashram (26) said they had brought the carcass from Bediya village. “The accused came in a white car and asked why we were slaughtering the cow. I told them that the cow was dead and that we were merely removing its skin. But they started abusing us and attacked us with iron pipes, sticks and a knife with which we were removing the skin of the carcass,” Vashram said in his complaint.

The other victims have been identified as Balu’s wife Kunvarben, their other son, Ramesh (23), and relatives Bechar Sarvaiya (30), Ashok Sarvaiya (20) and Deveshi Babariya (32).

While the entire nation mourned the CRPF men who were killed in the militant attack at Pampore on Saturday, an unseemly display of caste prejudice halted constable Vir Singh’s funeral at his village, Nagla Kewal in Shikohabad, Firozabad district.

Upper castes of the village refused to allow a public land to be used for the cremation of the slain soldier, who is from the Nat(acrobats) community. It was only after the intervention of district officials that villagers agreed to give up a 10 by 10 metre plot for the last rites.


Pic01: Martyr, Vir Singh Died for Nation that does not allow a  funeral

The incident took place on Sunday afternoon, when the family of the slain soldier wished to erect a statue of him near village road at a public land, where every year local fair takes place during festive times.

Speaking to TOI, the gram Pradhan of the village, Vijay Singh of Kanthari gram panchayat said, “In the morning, the local villagers had raised objections over martyred soldier’s family’s demand to cremate his body on public land and then erect a statue of him. But later, after long hours of talk with SDM, the villagers agreed to respect the family demand.”


 The 52-year-old Vir Singh was the sole bread earner of his family, who joined CRPF in 1981. His family stays in approximate 500 sq foot one room set home with tin shed as roof. He left behind his three children, including a 22-year daughter (Rajni) who is pursuing MSc and two sons – 18-year-old son (Ramandeep) pursuing BSc and 16-year-old (Sandeep) who just cleared intermediate.
