Ahmedabad : Six Dalits were thrashed by three members of another
community in Rethal village, about 20 kilometres from Sanand town, on
Tuesday night following which one of them died in the hospital. Three
others are said to be critical while one has sustained minor injuries.
The reason, police said, is the two FIRs they had lodged against one
Yuvrajsinh for allegedly beating up a Dalit auto-driver.
According to villagers, three persons carrying sticks entered
Rohitvas, a Dalit-dominated locality in the village, and beat up six
of them. Someone called up the medical emergency service and the
injured were rushed to the hospital. Later, a team of Sanand police
rushed to the village.
According to Ahmedabad district superintendent of police Rajiv Ranjan
Bhagat, Yuvrajsinh had beaten up an auto-driver, belonging to schedule
caste, in December 2011. The victim, Gautam Rathod, had lodged an FIR
at Sanand police station under Atrocity Act.
On Monday, Yuvrajsinh again beat up Rathod for lodging the FIR after
which a second FIR was lodged against him by one Rathod's neighbour
Ishwarbhai at the same police station.
"On Tuesday night, Yuvrajsinh and his two friends beat up Rathod and
five others. The victims were rushed to the hospital but one of them,
Atul, died during the treatment," Bhagat said.
The injured are being treated at a private hospital in Sarkhej in Ahmedabad.
