GREATER NOIDA: With just a day to go before the Samajwadi Party
government is sworn in, lawlessness in the state has started to show.
A few SP workers allegedly thrashed dalits in Ramgarh area in Dadri on
Wednesday over a petty issue. The groups had earlier clashed over a
land dispute. The police have registered a case with Dadri police
station under various sections of the IPC.

DIG Jyoti Narayan said that the incident took place on Wednesday.
"There were some old disputes between the groups. A team of senior
police officials, headed by SP (rural), arrested a few of the accused
while others are absconding," Narayan said.

An argument had started between four persons over buying a T-shirt.

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

SP (rural) Sriparna Ganguly said some villagers are claiming that the
clash was result of an old fight between SP and BSP members, but their
claims are being verified. "Around five months ago, a case under the
SC/ST Act was registered against one of the SP members," Ganguly

"Medical examination of 19 persons has already been conducted and the
police are registering their statements to carry out further
investigation in the matter," Ganguly said.
