Two Dalits burnt alive after clash over dog
Friday, 23rd April 2010
An argument between a Dalit and a Jat over the former’s dog led to near-unbridled violence in a village in Hisar district which was tense throughout Thursday after an 18-year-old physically challenged Dalit girl and her father were burnt alive on Wednesday.
A police probe revealed that Rajender, a Jat, and Yogesh from Valmiki (Dalit) community, got into an argument early this week, after the latter objected to Rajender hurling stones at his dog. When the matter reached the panchayat, two representatives of the Valmiki community — Veer Bhan and Karnpal — were summoned but ended up being beaten by the Jats.
