Lathicharge on Dalit protesters

Mandya (Karnataka), Mar 18 (PTI) Police used canes to disperse a group
of Dalits today when they turned violent on allegedly being refused
entry into a nearby temple.

Three policemen were injured in the clash, police said.

Ten persons have been arrested in this connection and prohibitory
orders under section 144 CrPC have been clamped for three days in
Kannali village, 20 km from here and its surroundings from today,
Additional Superintendent of Police Rajanna said.

The problem arose when some Dalits protested against the closure of
temple door when they wanted to perform worship, he said.

When the situation turned violent, police made lathicharge to control
the situation, he said.

Security has been beefed up in the village to prevent any untoward
incidents and the situation was now under control.
