New Delhi, Oct 25 (PTI) The Supreme Court today directed the Haryana
Government to file within three weeks its response in the case of
killing of two Dalits and torching of their houses allegedly by upper
caste men at Mirchpur village in Hissar district.A bench headed by
Justice G S Singhvi passed the order on a petition filed by the
victims' families pleading for expeditious action against the accused
involved in the case.Earlier, the apex court had pulled up the Haryana
government for delay in arresting 60 accused in the case.The apex
court had also slammed the Haryana government for its failure to
provide relief and rehabilitation measures to the affected families
and had directed the authorities to provide two quintals of wheat each
to the affected families.On April 21, a 70-year-old Dalit man and his
18-year-old physically-challenged daughter were burnt alive in the
incident, forcing about 150 families to flee the village and take
shelter at a Valmiki temple.
