[ZESTCaste] Parliamentary Committee to visit Mirchpur on July 2

Parliamentary Committee to visit Mirchpur on July 2

Hisar (Har), Jun 30 (PTI) Parliamentary Committee on the Welfare of SC
and ST will visit Mirchpur village on July 2, which had witnessed a
caste violence in April, to take stock of the steps taken by the state
administration to provide relief and rehabilitation to the victims.

The 30-member Parliamentary team will meet the affected families, take
stock of relief and rehabilitation measures taken by the state
government and will suggest steps for resettling the victims in their
own village, an official spokesman said here today.

On April 21, a 70-year-old man and his teenaged physically challenged
daughter were burnt alive and several others were injured when members
of a particular community torched several houses belonging to dalits
in Mirchpur.

The incident was triggered when a dog barked at a youth, belonging to
the pre-dominant Jat community, when he was passing by some dalits
houses in the village.
