Rajgarh (MP), Jan 29 (PTI) In a shocking incident, three persons
allegedly chopped off both hands and legs of a 27-year-old dalit youth
at Pagari Bangla village under Malawar police station limits in
Rajgarh district, apparently over a petty issue, police said today.
The victim, identified as Jagdish, has been referred to Bhopal for
treatment and was in a serious condition, they said. The incident took
place yesterday morning when the accused, identified as Arjun Thakur,
Shiva Gurjar and Madan, attacked Jagdish with an axe and a sharp-edged
weapon since he had complained to police against them for allegedly
stealing an electricity meter from his agriculture field. Harbouring a
grudge against Jagdish for approaching police, the three attacked him,
police said, adding a case has been registered against the accused
though no arrest has been made so far. Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh
Congress Committee president Kantilal Bhuria has strongly condemned
the incident saying the state administration has become "defunct" as
the chief minister remains occupied with political "dramatics". He
also demanded immediate arrest of the culprits and has also sought Rs
5,000 as a life-time monthly assistance for the victim. PTI COR MAS
