The district administration on Wednesday provided financial assistance
to 43 Dalits of Karandiapatana village under Mehendipur gram panchayat
of Marshaghai block in the district, who were attacked on February 18
by fellow upper caste villagers over the construction of Hanuman

Inspector-in-charge of Patkura police station Aloka Roy said district
welfare officer (DWO), Abhimanyu Mohapatra reached the village and
distributed financial assistance to the 43 Dalit victims, including
eight women, in the presence of Patkura police, Dalit leaders, NGO
activists and local reporters.

DWO Mohapatra informed that the National Schedule Castes and Scheduled
Tribes Department funded a sum of Rs 2.09 lakh as financial assistance
to Dalit victims of Karandiapatana village.

The district administration has distributed a sum of Rs 3,125 each to
the 35 males as first installment following the instruction of the
Central Government whereas a sum of Rs 12,500 each was provided to
eight woman members of the Dalit community .The State Government is
going to disburse the said amount to the 43 Dalits very shortly,
stated Mohapatra.

"There is a clear guideline that if the Dalits were victimised in the
hands of upper caste persons with loss of property and if the matter
has gone to the court of law under SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocity)
Act then the Dalits would get 25 per cent of the total compensation
amount and the next compensation amount would be provided after the
judgement of the case," stated Mohapatra.
