Shimla, April 29

States should set up special courts to try cases related to atrocities
on Dalits, union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Mukul
Wasnik said Friday.

He said a large number of cases were pending in Punjab, Haryana and
Himachal Pradesh.

In Himachal Pradesh, he said, of 698 cases registered between 2007 and
2009, there was convictions only in 18 cases and 120 acquittals.

"As many as 533 cases are still pending in various courts. This means
76.4 percent of the cases are pending," Wasnik told reporters here.

In Haryana, of 2,349 cases, there had been convictions in 110 cases,
501 acquittals and 1,736 cases were pending in courts.
