Investigation in SC/ST Atrocities cases to be expedited
Kakinada | Sunday, Mar 21 2010 IST

The Vigilance and Monitoring Committee at its meeting on prevention of
atrocities on members of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, today
directed the police to expedite probe in atrocities cases to render
justice promptly to the victims. The Committe also instructed the
officials of the Social Welfare Department to furnish the reasons for
ruling a particular case as not proved to enable victims to seek
remedial measures in appropriate court. Social Welfare Minister Pilli
Subhas Chandra Bose agreed with members' suggestions that rape victims
should be paid the compensation in full without waiting for the
doctors report.

He urged district officials to scruplously follow the provisons of the
Protection of Civil Rights and Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes
Prevention of Atrocities on Dalits.

District Collector Gopalakrishna Dwivedi who presided, assured the
agitated members that instructions were issued to the police officers
to expedite the investigation in specific cases raised by them. He
also agreed to take action in providing employment on humanitarian
grounds to the family members of those killed.
