New Delhi: With just few hours to go before the Akhilesh Yadav-led
Samajawadi Party government takes charge in UP, the lawlessness by
the SP workers in the state has yet again started to show.

In continuation of violence reported across Uttar Pradesh after the
SP's victory in the assembly elections, over a dozen Dalits were
thrashed by party workers in the Dadri area, where outgoing CM and BSP
supremo Mayawati's ancestral village, Badalpur, is located.

According to the media reports, a few SP workers allegedly thrashed
dalits in Ramgarh area in Dadri on Wednesday over a petty issue.

Local residents said that after the incident, the Ramgarh village head
and his family members and supporters brutally thrashed the dalit
group in which at least 20 people were injured, six of them

Among the injured are women who have been admitted to hospitals with
fractured bones.

Tension prevails in the area even as additional police personnel were
deployed at the village to prevent fresh outbreak of clash.

An FIR was lodged at Dadri police station late evening in connection
with the incident.
