[ZESTCaste] Satara Dalit woman atrocity case: police officer suspended

Satara Dalit woman atrocity case: police officer suspended
PTI | 06:03 PM,Mar 16,2012

Mumbai, Mar 16 (PTI) Maharashtra Government today announced the
suspension of concerned officer of Patan tehsil police station at
Mulgaon in Satara district in connection with the parading of a Dalit
woman in January this year. "The concerned officer, who showed laxity
in registering a case against the accused, is suspended," Minister of
State for Home, Satej Patil, said in the Legislative Council. The
government was serious about the issue and was not shielding anybody,
he added. The woman was allegedly paraded naked by members of an upper
caste family after her son eloped with a girl from the family. Shiv
Sena MLC Diwakar Raote said, "Why the opposition had to demand his
suspension, when the incident had occurred three months ago?" The
government should have registered a case against the officer on its
own rather than waiting for the discussion to take place in the house,
Raote said. "Suspending the officer will not serve any purpose...he
should be dismissed from his service," he added. PTI KVS KRK
