[ZESTCaste] BJP team demands judicial probe into attacks on Dalits in Haryana

BJP team demands judicial probe into attacks on Dalits in Haryana

New Delhi, Apr 28 : A two-member BJP Parliamentary panel that went
into the atrocities on Dalit community at Mirchpur village in Hisar in
Haryana on April 21 has sought a judicial probe and observed that the
state Administration was not sensitive to the insecure feelings of
dalit community.

The panel consisting of Mr Virender Kashyap and Arjun Ram Meghawal
went to the troubled spot which had seen the killing of two dalits and
setting fire to 25 dalit homes and submitted its report to Leader of
Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj this noon.

Mr Kashyap told newspersons that the dalits felt unsafe in the village
and most families had moved out of the area fearing attacks.

The state administration had not shown sensitivity the situation
deserved and was doing nothing to assuage the insecure feelings
harboured by the victims.

Besides the judicial probe, the panel had recommended a compensation
of Rs 10 lakh each for the families of the dead victims and employment
to one person in the deceased family.
