The similar humiliation of cleansing the retired dalit officer's room, has also happened in another case of a very highly ranked dalit officer, in which complaint was given to National Commission for Scheduled Castes & also to Police, but no action is taken after continuous pursuation by victim. Since casteist perpetrators are high influential position holding bureaucrats, NCSC and Police did not act, hence extending indirect support and encouragement to casteist oppressors to further increasingly harass and humiliate the victimised GM.
The incident happened in May,2008 in New Delhi office of that Government of India organisation (at Hansalaya Building, Barakhamba Road), when this SC General Manager was shifted from his room to another small room; and other high caste officer was being shifted to his room (which was a decent room, hence dalit officer was not allowed to continue there). To purify the room and the surrounding hall, Puja (religious purifying ceramony) was performed there by the group of high caste officials. Also the lock of SC GM was broken to open it to perform the puja there. The said dalit GM was the senior most dalit officer at Delhi head office of the said organisarion (under Ministry of Commerce) hence he was not being tolerated by the high caste top management of the organisation; and was being continuously harassed and discriminated. Later he was discriminately & arbitrarily transfered from Delhi to Hyderabad, to torture him alongwith his family (transferred to
an office where not even a junior officer is required because no work of organisation is there; and also maintained in dirty substandard shameful conditions for the purpose of harassment & humiliation only).
The unfortunate victim is myself.
