KANPUR: The police on Monday claimed to have arrested another accused
Shiv Om from near Deagh village of Fatehpur district in the dalit girl
assault case. The police had arrested one of the accused, Harishanker
Pasi, in the case on Saturday. However, one of the accused is still

Said Bindki inspector Prem Chand: "Shiv Om wanted to marry the girl
and he tried to convince her parents but they refused to marry their
daughter in same caste and in same village. This hurt him and he got
in touch with Harishanker Pasi and hatched the plan. On Saturday, the
accused along with Harishanker and his brother-in-law attacked the
girl brutally."

Meanwhile, members of the former armed forces organisation on Monday
held a meeting at Tambeshwar Guest house in Fatehpur to express
solidarity with the 16-year-old Dalit girl who was brutally disfigured
after she resisted gangrape on Saturday evening at Urdauli village in
Fatehpur district.

Vidhya Bhushan Tewari, president of the organisation, said, "We were
shocked when we came to know about such an horrifying incident. We
urge the people who share the belief of a violence-free society to
come forward and strongly condemned the incident".

Another activist said, "We want to assert that we will walk the
streets anytime of the day or night without being afraid from these
coward elements, who are targetting innocent people particularly women
and girls."
