ANANTAPUR: Alleging that a 12-year old Dalit student was beaten to
death by farmers for stealing tomatoes in a farm in Dimmameedapalle
village of NP Kunta mandal in the district, Madiga Dandora and MRPS
leaders staged a protest at the mandal headquarters of NP Kunta mandal
on Saturday.
They demanded immediate arrest of Ramana Reddy and other farmers in
the village, who they alleged had beaten Rajkumar, a VII class
student, holding him responsible for the thefts in their fields.
Rajkumar died on August 21. It was given to understand that he fell
into a pit accidentally. His parents buried the body.
But with rumours doing the rounds that he may have been murdered by
Ramana Reddy and others, the boy's parents, along with several
villagers and MRPS activists went to NP Kunta police station, and
demanded a re-postmortem of the body.
NP Kunta SI Subbaraydu had agreed for the re-postmortem after
discussing the issue with tahsildar Yella Reddy.
He said they could determine whether the death was accidental or
murder only after the postmortem reports are submitted.
