Dalits threaten to boycott civic polls
Ramanathapuram (PTI): Dalits residents of Pacheri Village in the
district where a Dalit boy was hacked to death on September 9 have
decided to boycott the coming local body elections demanding a CBI
inquiry into the murder and also the police firing in Paramakudi which
left seven persons dead.
Police opened firing in Paramakudi when a group of Dalits indulged in
violence demanding the release of their leader John Pandian who was
detained when he was on way to pay homage at the memorial of Imanuel
Sekhar last month.
