AJMER: A Dalit groom's wedding procession under police protection
proceeded to the remote village of Kaliyahardiya on Sunday due to
threats made by Jats of the same village. The Jats had threatened the
family that the groom should not move on the road on horseback.

The Kaliyahardiya village in Lamba Harisingh panchayat near Tonk
district was tense since last two days when Jat panchayat passed a
farman' (order) against the Dalit groom. Heavy police protection was
provided to the family on Sunday night and the wedding was solemnised

According to police, Ram Charan of Kaliyahardiya had complained two
days ago that his 18-year-old daughter's marriage was fixed with a boy
of Ramdevji village of Arai block of Ajmer. Ram Charan's report stated
that after reaching the panchayat bhavan the wedding procession was to
move towards the bride's house. But the Jats of the village threatened
Ram Charan that the groom should not go on the road on horseback."

"On investigating the matter it was found that some people from the
village were planning to attack the Dalit wedding procession. Hence,
we took precautionary measures," said Lalaram, police in-charge.
