Allahabad, July 11 (PTI) The Allahabad High Court has sought a reply
from Uttar Pradesh government on a petition which alleged Dalit
children, belonging to the Musahar caste, were facing discrimination
at a primary school in Varanasi.
Passing the order on the petition of Luv Saggi and others, a division
bench comprising Chief Justice F I Rebello and Justice Prakash Krishna
also directed the district magistrate of Varanasi to inquire into the
allegations and submit a report.

Musahars were not allowed to sit along side students from other castes
during classes nor were they allowed to partake of the mid-day meal

school on account of the "discriminatory" treatment.
The matter has been posted for further hearing on July 27.
